Parkwood receives state Title I Improvement Award

Wednesday, June 23, 2010

Parkwood Elementary in Shoreline has again been selected to receive the Title I Improvement Award from the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI).

Parkwood will receive an award of nearly $13,000 to be used to support its continuing efforts to increase student academic success. The funds are provided through No Child Left Behind Title I, Part A. The mission of Title I, a federally funded program, is to assist children from low income areas with their basic skills.

Parkwood was selected based upon its students’ performance on state assessments. To be eligible for the award, the school had to make Adequate Yearly Progress for three years, be a Title I school for three years and show significant gains in closing achievement gaps. Parkwood also received this award in 2007.

Parkwood has shown significant improvement in student achievement in all of the measured sub-categories on the state test (all ethnic categories, ELL, low-income, and special education students).

"This award belongs to our highly-skilled and dedicated teachers and support staff, our hard working and creative students, and our supportive and committed families," said Laura Ploudre, who has been Parkwood principal since 2001.
