School Improvement Plans and State Testing Trends

As a District, we are proud to present our school improvement plans:

2016-2017 K-8 SIP: Elementary/Middle School Improvement Plan
2016-2018 WHS SIP: Wahkiakum High School Improvement Plan

Our school improvement plans are working documents that paint a solid picture of the current work in each of our three schools and the curriculum areas staff will continue to address.

These SIPs demonstrate to our students, staff, families, and community that the Wahkiakum School District is instructionally-driven and focused on continuous improvement. Communicating this information is a celebration. These SIPs also help the District and each of the schools focus on a few key areas.

You are encouraged to review the contents of these School Improvement Plans and, for more detailed information, visit the website for the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction for Washington State and review the detailed results of the Wahkiakum School District OSPI Report Card.

If you have questions about the information in these documents, feel free to contact our School Principals:
                Elementary and Middle School Principal Nikki Reese: email Nikki or call 360-795-3261
                High School Principal Stephanie Leitz: email Stephanie or call 360-795-3271

Teacher and Principal Evaluation Systems

The Washington State Legislature approved three instructional frameworks to guide teaching and learning in the state. The three instructional frameworks are Marzano, Danielson and UW CEL 5D+. The law requires that school districts adopt a framework and its related evaluation system for implementation beginning with the 2013-2014 school year.

The Wahkiakum School District has selected the University of Washington's 5D+ Model for evaluating teachers and the AWSP Leadership Framework for evaluating school principals. For details on each of these frameworks, visit the OSPI Teacher/Principal Evaluation Program.
