McMicken Recognized for Continuous Improvement for Black Students

McMicken staff with small group of students.

One of 31 Schools in Washington to be Part of Study

Congratulations to the administration, staff and community of McMicken Heights Elementary School for being recognized by The Center for Educational Effectiveness (CEE) for continuous improvement for Black students.

McMicken Elementary School was selected from over 2,200 individual schools across Washington state as one of only 31 schools that met the criteria for positively influencing outcomes for either Black, Latinx or low-income students. 

The Center for Educational Effectiveness study, Educational Landscape and Systems Analysis of Washington State, is supported through a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates foundation.

The purpose of the study is to gain a deep understanding of the highly effective continuous improvement efforts that support continued improvements for students. This study will produce a comprehensive analysis of access to essential data, the programs, partnerships, and systems elements driving the improvement. 

The knowledge gained from this project is intended to be used by school districts and their supporting professional organizations to enhance their local continuous improvement efforts. The study includes interviews with district and school administration, school staff, students, families and community members. A final report is due April 2021.
