Kennewick schools recognized for student achievement

Several schools are being recognized for their ability to not only meet, but exceed, the challenging student achievement goals in Math and Reading as set by the Kennewick School District Board of Directors.

Achievement scores are based on student assessment data collected during the 2013-14 school year.

“Our teachers are truly doing an amazing job if you consider the challenges that they face every day,” stated Assistant Superintendent of Elementary Education Greg Fancher. “In many schools, we are seeing more students with challenging demographics, yet our teachers continue to make the same outstanding progress.”

Congratulations to this year’s achievement award winners!
