In case you haven’t heard, Parowan Elementary was named as a National ESEA Distinguished School. It is one of two schools in Utah to receive this distinguished honor and our school will be recognized at the National ESEA conference held in Atlanta, Georgia.
The National ESEA Distinguished Schools Program publicly recognized Parowan Elementary for outstanding academic achievement of their students. This recognition highlights the efforts of schools across the country making significant improvements for their students. The program has been in place since 1996, showcasing the success of hundreds of schools in one of three categories:
CATEGORY 1: Exceptional student performance and academic growth for two or more consecutive years CATEGORY 2: Closing the achievement gap between student groups for two or more consecutive years CATEGORY 3: Excellence in serving special populations of students (e.g. homeless, migrant, English learners, etc.)
Parowan Elementary will be highlighted in category 1.
Congratulations to the Parowan community, students, and Parowan Elementary staff for a job well done.
