Congratulations to the teachers, staff, students, parents, community and leaders of Franklin Elementary School for being recognized by The Center for Educational Effectiveness (CEE) for continuous student improvement. Franklin Elementary School was selected from among the over 2,200 individual schools across Washington state as one of only 34 schools that met the criteria of the study for positively influencing student outcomes!
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.
