  • RHS a "School of Distinction" 3 Years in A Row

    From a letter sent by the Center for Educational Effectiveness: Congratulations! Your school is a 2016 School of Distinction. The School of Distinction* award is the only one in the state entirely focused on combined improvement in ELA and math, sustained over a five-year period. Achieving this award requires continued, intentional effort from leaders and staff members. It is truly an award that recognizes the accomplishments of a dedicated and focused group of adults doing their best work for their students. Joined with our partner organizations—Association of Educational Service Districts, Association of Washington School Principals, Washington Association of School Administrators, Washington State Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development and Washington State School Directors’ Association—we acknowledge the great work you are doing to benefit student learning and achievement. Your efforts deserve celebration. You will receive a 2016 School of Distinction banner and Certificate from your Educational Service District for display at your school – visual reminders and a source of pride for you and your entire school community. We applaud all you are doing to make such positive contributions to your students and hope in the next few weeks you will take some time to celebrate both your efforts and your achievements. Sincerely, Marilyn McGuire Vice President for School and District Improvement Center for Educational Effectiveness *This is the 3rd year in a row that RHS has received this honor.

  • Raymond School Board is 2017 Board of the Year

    State’s highest honor comes after earlier designation as a 2017 Board of Distinction Raymond Public Schools won the award in the category of 1,000 or fewer students. Boards of the Year are those whose nomination for Board of Distinction is the highest-scoring in each of three size categories. Quincy School District’s board (in the 1,001-9,000-student size category) and the board of Issaquah School District (in the 9,001+ student size category) were also recognized. Earlier this month, the Raymond School Board of Directors was named one of only 23 Boards of Distinction by the Washington State School Directors Association (WSSDA). Each year WSSDA invites school boards to submit applications documenting research- based governance practices that lead to high levels of student and district achievement. This year, WSSDA asked school boards to respond to and provide evidence of: Making decisions that positively changed the “opportunity gap.” Engaging the local community and representing the values and expectations it holds for schools by ensuring district information and decisions are communicated community-wide. The board submitted evidence of success in closing the opportunity gap through such initiatives as: Save the Children home visits Parent education Reducing parent out-of-pocket education costs Implementing curriculum designed for second-language learners “Jump Start” for all incoming kindergartners to help them have a strong start in school Requiring that all high schoolers have an “after high school” plan prior to graduation Fostering links to higher education, career and educational opportunities beyond the town’s borders Additionally, the board reported on how the District engages the local community by: Informing the community regarding school activities and issues via monthly newspaper articles and digital kiosks Collecting data annually from staff, parents and students regarding District operations Publishing and updating an interactive strategic plan on the District’s website The board’s nomination, which earned the highest scores of the state’s smaller districts, is published online.
