BT 2016 Honor Roll Award

News

4/19/17


It was announced this week that 6 of Centralia's schools have been selected by Educational Results Partnership (ERP) and the Campaign for Business and Education Excellence (CBEE) along with 1,866 other public schools in California to receive the title of 2016 Honor Roll school. They are: Buena Terra Elementary, George B. Miller Elementary, Glen H. Dysinger Sr. Elementary, Los Coyotes Elementary, Raymond Temple Elementary and San Marino Elementary.

 

The Honor Roll is part of a national effort to identify higher-performing schools and highlight successful practices that improve outcomes for students. Schools receiving this distinction from leaders in the California academic and business communities have demonstrated consistent high levels of student academic achievement, improvement in achievement levels over time and reduction in achievement gaps among student populations. 

 

Congratulations to our amazing students and staff at all 8 of our schools for all the hard work they do, day in and day out, building tomorrow's successes today!

Curious as to how Centralia compares in the new California School Dashboard? Click HERE to see how we are preparing today's scholars for future excellence.

 

The California School Dashboard (www.caschooldashboard.org) is an online tool designed to help communities across the state access important information about K-12 districts and schools. The Dashboard features easy-to-read reports on multiple measures of school success. The Dashboard is just one step in a series of major shifts in public education, changes that have raised the bar for student learning, transformed testing, and increased the focus on equity. Want to learn more about this new measurement tool? See the video produced by the California Department of Education.
