English language proficiency assessment shows district met two of three targets. Federal law requires Washington state to set standards for the development of English language proficiency skills and academic progress for children learning English. Every year schools across the state test students who are learning English with the Washington English Language Proficiency Assessment, which measures English language proficiency in the areas of reading, writing, speaking and listening. The first target districts are required to meet looks for an annual increase in the percentage of students making process in learning English. The state's target is 68.1 percent, the Grandview School District shows an increase of 77.3 percent of students making progress during the 2014-2015 school year. Another target is the percent of students attaining English proficiency - the state's target is 8 percent and last year 10.6 percent of Grandview's students successfully transitioned from the English language development program. The final target measures the percentage of students learning English who reach academic standards in reading and math.

Family income survey due back to district by Sept. 1. As you may know, our schools now offer all meals at no charge. In order to help our schools get the full amount of federal and state funding available to them and to make sure your child is receiving all the services they are eligible for, the school must have a way to identify children from households that are at or below the federal poverty level. There are certain state funded programs (all-day kindergarten, learning assistance program, teacher incentives, and K- 3 poverty) that are given to our school district based on income levels of households for student's attending that school. This is why it is so important for you to return this information to your school. Please complete this form by Sept. 1st and return to your schools office.
