Cottonwood, Ridge View elementary schools earn Washington Achievement awards

Cottonwood and Ridge View elementary schools were awarded 2016 Washington Achievement Awards by the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction for the progress they’ve made in student achievement.

The Kennewick School District schools were the only ones to receive the award in the Tri-Cities and two of five to receive it in southeastern Washington. Cottonwood was recognized for overall high progress and Ridge View for closing achievement gaps among its low-income and disabled students.

“Our staff work hard to help all our students meet their potential and it’s great when that effort is recognized and celebrated,” said Superintendent Dave Bond.

This is the eighth year OSPI has provided the awards. They are awarded based on a school’s standardized testing results from the past three years and the Washington Achievement Index, which measures school performance.
