March 11, 2012

Several Washington County Public Schools were recognized Tuesday for improvements from 2010 to 2011 that are related to assessment-test results.

The schools also met adequate yearly progress, without using a Safe Harbor option, last school year under the federal No Child Left Behind Act, according to presentation documents.

Schools were recognized for either overall achievement or achievement among demographic student subgroups.

Schools recognized for overall achievement were Barbara Ingram School for the Arts, Boonsboro Elementary, Boonsboro High, Clear Spring High, Hancock Elementary, North Hagerstown High, Rockland Woods Elementary, Sharpsburg Elementary, Smithsburg Middle, Smithsburg High and Washington County Technical High.

Schools recognized for achievement in subgroups were Boonsboro Elementary, Boonsboro High, Clear Spring Middle, Clear Spring High, North Hagerstown High, Rockland Woods Elementary, Smithsburg Elementary, Smithsburg High and Washington County Technical High.

An assistant superintendent reviewed the list of schools with board members.

Representatives from the schools were not present because school system officials didn’t want to pull them out of school for the daytime board meeting, Superintendent Clayton Wilcox said. Those schools’ principals were to be recognized at a staff meeting and there will be appropriate celebrations with their teaching staffs, he said.
