Parents who host, lose the most. Children who are allowed to drink at home are more likely to drink outside of their home compared to their peers. Even allowing your children to sip (sample) alcohol can lead to additional behaviors of alcohol acceptance in teenage years. In Washington State, it is also illegal for a person to allow an underage person to drink on his or her premises, or on any premises under his or her control. Fines can be up to $5,000 and one year in jail. 2014 Healthy Youth Survey Data shows that 21% of teens get their alcohol at home: either with permission or not. As parents, you are the number one reason your child will not use alcohol. Please don’t host underage parties, and if you have alcohol at home, make sure it is unavailable and/or locked to your teen. This information is also true for marijuana. For more information check out: www.starttalkingnow.org & www.liq.wa.gov
Washington Achievement Award combines state’s Accountability Index and federal accountability criteria
OLYMPIA— A total of 413 schools are 2013 Washington Achievement Award winners. Winners were notified Monday via email from State Superintendent Randy Dorn and State Board of Education Chair Dr. Kristina Mayer.
The Washington Achievement Award is sponsored by the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction and the State Board of Education. Award winners are selected using the state’s Accountability Index and the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) Flexibility Waiver.
“It is important that we use the revised Achievement Index to not only provide feedback to schools and districts on their progress, but also to identify schools with exemplary student performance,” said Mayer. “These awards shine the light on what is working well in schools across Washington.”
Schools are recognized as top performers in one of six categories:
Dorn supports this collaboration. “So many schools in our state are doing good work to make a difference for kids,” he said. “These awards represent some of the best. It’s an honor to recognize them and celebrate their success.”
The award-winning schools will be honored at a ceremony on April 24 at Timberline High School in Lacey.
