OSPI selected this year’s winners based on 2012-13 school year data. These schools have increased their graduation rates and academic rigor. This has led to more students with college-ready transcripts and fewer students in need of remediation once they get to college. Most of these high implementing schools are in the College Readiness Initiative, a grant program funded by College Spark Washington.
Congratulations to UW GEAR UP districts Goldendale, Toppenish and Grandview for being awarded recognition!
