Pathways to Excellence

My School, Our Future (2013)

February 3, 2014

What’s happening at the school down the road from you? Whether you have students in your family or not, the successes and shortcomings in our schools impact our society and the economy. We espouse equal opportunity, yet the educational experience and outcome for diverse economic and ethnic groups don’t reflect this ideal. Across Washington and throughout the nation, schools are working to overcome gaps in opportunity and achievement.

Honored with the Pathways to Excellence Award from Neah Bay to Toppenish, schools are trailblazing better learning for all, changing the outcome for even those most vulnerable. Students are taking ownership of their own learning through greater collaboration among teachers, a bolstering of school-family connections, adopting culturally relevant practices, and improving assessment and instruction.
