CONGRATULATIONS TO ONALASKA MIDDLE SCHOOL
The Center for Educational Effectiveness has named Onalaska Middle School a:
SCHOOL OF DISTINCTION
This designation was awarded to the school because of improved student growth and achievement over the past five years in Mathematics and Reading.
The staff, students and administration are to be congratulated for their time and efforts over the past three years in making positive changes in teaching and learning that have led to this recognition.
The community is to be thanked for their support and patience as the school established a new teaching methodology and curriculum to meet the needs of their students. This support from our community was instrumental in the gains that have been made over the years. The school/community partnership will continue as we work towards continuous improvement in student achievement and growth.
Lastly, ESD 113 is to be commended for their continued support during this turnaround. Their support and expertise was instrumental in changing the culture of the building and supporting teaching and learning. The instructional coaches that were provided assisted in the implementation of best practices in the classroom as well as monitoring student progress throughout the year and working with staff on interpretation of assessment data
