    CHS RECIPIENT OF WASHINGTON ACHIEVEMENT AWARD

    Congratulations!  Colville Senior High School is a recipient of the 2013 Washington Achievement Award.  Washington Achievement Award winners are selected using the Washington Achievement Index and criteria in the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) flexibility waiver. The award is given in six categories: Overall Excellence, High Progress, Reading Growth, Math Growth, 5-year graduation rate and English Language Acquisition. Colville Senior High School is being recognized for:  High Progress

    The Washington Achievement Award is sponsored by the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction and the State Board of Education. Washington Achievement Award combines state’s Accountability Index and federal accountability criteria

    “It is important that we use the revised Achievement Index to not only provide feedback to schools and districts on their progress, but also to identify schools with exemplary student performance,” said State Board of Education Chair Dr. Kristina Mayer. “These awards shine the light on what is working well in schools across Washington.”

    State Superintendent Randy Dorn supports this collaboration. “So many schools in our state are doing good work to make a difference for kids,” he said. “These awards represent some of the best. It’s an honor to recognize them and celebrate their success.”

    CHS has won this award three years in a row and 5 out of the last 6.  This is what happens when you combine a great staff, with a tremendous student body.

    U of MT Jazz Fest  
     
    Congrats to our CHS Jazz Band I for their performance at the University of Montana Jazz Festival on Friday.  The band performed beautifully and won awards for “Best Rhythm Section,” “Best Trumpet Section,” and “Best Trombone Section” (almost a clean sweep!).  Bands from 3 states attended the festival and it was not sorted out by school size – our kids have a lot to be proud of.

    Once again Colville High School student averages are higher than state averages  in Reading, Writing, Math, Biology andGraduation Rate (as measured on the state report card).   Although the name, structure, and content of the state exams has changed,  Colville High School students have not only tested proficient at a higher level than the state, but have also increased each test score from the previous year.  This is nothing new for Colville High School whose students have outperformed the state in each of the last eight years.  CHS scores are listed above the state scores in the tables below. These results reflect Colville School District’s continued drive to improve academic achievement.
