Steamboat School’s Recognized as Best in the State
Once again the Steamboat Springs School District was honored by the Colorado Department of Education as one of the best school district’s in the state. The district was one of 16 awarded the “Accredited with Distinction” honor for overall performance.
I’ve blogged about it before but Steamboat has been recognized with this award since the Colorado Department of Education began labeling schools with it four years ago. To reach the “Accredited with Distinction” award, a school must earn 80% or more of available points based on academic achievement, academic growth, reducing academic growth gaps, and postsecondary and workforce readiness.
Three of Steamboat’s schools – the middle school, high school and Strawberry Park Elementary School – were given the John Irwin Award. This honor is bestowed upon schools that show sustained academic excellence.
