Chimacum High School Wins State’s Highest Honor
Washington Achievement Award combines state’s Accountability Index and federal accountability criteria
Chimacum High School is one of the schools receiving this award for our students’ improvement on math and reading tests over the past 3 years.
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:
- Overall Excellence
- High Progress
- Reading Growth
- Math Growth
- Extended Graduation Rate (awarded to high schools and comprehensive schools only)
- English Language Acquisition
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.

SCHOOL CALENDAR - ONE PAGE
The name Chimacum originated from the Chimakum Valley Indians, who inhabited the area until treaties were signed with settlers, and boundaries were formed. The first school was built in 1915 and was used as Kindergarten through Eighth grade until it burned in 1943. It was later rebuilt in the present site and continues to be in use today as a K-12 school.
Chimacum School District has enjoyed the support of the community through the passage every two years of a local maintenance and operations levy. The levy provides many things including additional teachers to keep class sizes small, support for extra curricular activities, new technology for students and programs for highly capable students. The school board has adopted school improvement plans from all grade levels and will continue to monitor these plans annually in an effort to continually improve student instruction. READ MORE
