Central and Windward Schools are 2017 Schools of Distinction

Central Elementary and Windward High Schools Receive School of Distinction Awards

Central Elementary School and Windward High School are celebrating a School of Distinction (SOD) award received on November 6, 2017 for sustained improvement in English Language Arts (ELA) and Math over a five-year period. They are two of 98 schools so honored by the Center for Educational Effectiveness (CEE) and their partner organizations that have recognized schools all over the state for continuous and substantive improvement.

There are many reasons for the success of students. One of the most important reasons is checking in and finding out what each student is learning, that no one is falling through the cracks. All kids are accountable for learning and all of them know their principals, teachers and support staff care enough to make sure that they are doing the learning work. No student is an invisible learner. All are successful.”

Central School serves approximately 340 students in grades K-5. Windward High serves approximately 75 students in grades 9-12.

Celebrations for each school will be announced and held at a later date.
