TEC High School Honored with 2013 School of Distinction Award
Outstanding improvement in student achievement over five years has led to a special honor for White Center’s Technology, Engineering & Communications (TEC) High School, being honored with the 2013 School of Distinction Award.
The award is given to the top 5% of schools in Washington State who have made sustained improvement in reading and math over five years.
“This award reflects the dedication and hard work of our TEC staff, students, and families,” said Superintendent Susan Enfield. “TEC has worked diligently over the last five years to increase the academic rigor for all students, and this honor demonstrates what happens when we hold our students to high expectations.”
The award is granted by The Center for Educational Effectiveness (CEE), the Association of Educational Service Districts (AESD), the Association of Washington School Principals (AWSP), Washington Association of School Administrators (WASA), and Washington State School Directors’ Association (WSSDA).
The School of Distinction awards were created in the summer of 2007 to recognize the highest improving schools in Washington State. Five years of data in reading and mathematics are used to recognize sustained improvement among schools.
High schools are evaluated based on their scores on the state High School Proficiency Exam (HSPE) for reading and End-of-Course exams in mathematics.
TEC High School is located on the old Evergreen High School campus, located at 830 SW 116th Street in White Center.
