Awardees were selected based on the Washington State Achievement Index – a snapshot of a school’s performance based on statewide assessments – and the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) Flexibility Waiver. The waiver outlines Washington’s system of setting clear, high expectations; collecting information to determine progress toward those expectations; and working with schools and districts to provide the necessary supports and interventions to improve outcomes. The Washington Achievement Award is sponsored by the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction and the State Board of Education.
