NEWS-LEDGER — MAY 16, 2012 –
Bridgeway Island Elementary School was named a “Title I Academic Achievement Award” again this year by State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson. It’s the second consecutive year for the award.
The honor goes to schools that meet performance standards “meeting the educational needs of students living at or below the poverty line,” according to the Washington Unified School District. Over 6,000 of the 9,000 schools in California qualify, said the district in a press release.
To receive a Title I award, schools must demonstrate progress on student testing and the campuses’ disadvantaged students must achieve at double the improvement goals set for them for two consecutive years.
Bridgeway has an API score of 873, and its subgroups of students have met their goals, said WUSD.
“Congratulations to our staff, students and their families for their commitment to excellence in student achievement,” Principal Grace Chin was quoted in the press release.
