LMS Receives Growth Award

Congratulations Lakeside Middle School!  The State Board of Education, the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction, and the Educational Opportunity Gap Oversight and Accountability Committee selected 219 schools in the state of Washington that met one or more of the 3 criteria to be recognized:

  • Closing Gaps: recognizes schools previously identified for ESSA support tiers 1-3 with low performing student groups that showed substantial improvement.
  • Growth: recognizes schools making the largest annual gains on the Washington School Improvement Framework (WSIF) measures and meeting the gap reduction requirement - the WSIF gap between the highest and lowest performing student group must be narrowing.
  • Achievement: recognizes the highest achieving schools on ELA and math proficiency, high school graduation rate, and the School Quality and Student Success (SQSS) measures, and meeting the winter 2019 WSIF performance requirement – all student groups must be performing at 6.0 or higher on the 2019 WISF, well above the state average.

Lakeside Middle School was recognized for Growth, and was one of 34 middle schools recognized state-wide.  It was one of three recognized from the 59 districts in Educational Services District 101.  This was based off of 2017-2018 SBA results.
