Only one school in Spokane County received the State Superintendent's Improvement Award and that went to Garfield Elementary for their work in improving math and reading proficiency.
“This award means a great deal to the Garfield community,” Garfield Principal Clint Price said. “Garfield staff, students and parents have been working hard to meet the high levels of academic rigor we have for all students."
The Title I, Part A Improvement Award comes with a $5,515 grant.
The award was given to 56 schools in Washington State.
