The state Board of Education and OSPI make the awards based on student performance and statewide assessments in reading, math and science tests as well as high school extended graduation rates, which includes students who took longer than four years to graduate. Assessments and outcomes are also broken down into achievement of students who come from low-income and those who do not come from low-income families, other peer comparisons and improvement from the previous year. This is the fourth year the awards have been made.
