South Kitsap school honored as national award-winning schools

OLYMPIA — Burley-Greenwood Elementary School was one of 12 state schools honored for winning national awards given through the Elementary and Secondary Education Act.

The awards recognize schools that met the federal Adequate Yearly Progress and Annual Measurable Objectives standards in reading and/or math, as well as closing the opportunity gaps between white students and traditionally underrepresented students.

A ceremony was held March 13 at the Governor’s Mansion.

Burley-Greenwood was honored as one of three State Title 1 Distinguished Schools. The other school were Madison Elementary in Olympia and Neah Bay Elementary in Cape Flattery.

State Title I Distinguished Schools will receive $5,000 each.
