WHS is RIDE Commended School

RIDE Releases 2014 School Classifications

Schools in 20 school districts plus 3 charter public schools received the highest classification, Commended, in the 2014 School Classifications that the R.I. Department of Education (RIDE) released today (June 9, 2014).

RIDE used the Rhode Island Accountability System, which is designed to recognize outstanding performance and to provide support to low-achieving schools, to determine the 2014 School Classifications. 

The accountability system enables RIDE to: 
  • focus on achievement gaps;
  • diagnose school performance by identifying specific shortcomings and achievements at each school;
  • provide schools with the ability to select interventions that respond to their context and their needs; and
  • provide schools with the support needed to implement the intervention so as to improve student achievement and to close achievement gaps.
“I am glad that we have been able to honor schools from the majority of our school districts as 2014 Commended Schools, and I am particularly pleased that 18 high schools are among our commended schools this year,” said Deborah A. Gist, Commissioner of Elementary and Secondary Education. “Under our new Diploma System, these high schools have maintained high levels of proficiency while closing achievement gaps and supporting a high graduation rate. We will continue working to advance all schools toward greatness, with a particular concentration on helping our Priority and Focus Schools move forward with their approved plans for school transformation.”  Continue Reading  
Presentation to the School Committee

Rhode Island recognized for its process for evaluating support professionals
Westerly's own Patrick Cozzolino was quoted in an article recently published on the United States Department of Education website. The article featured Rhode Island’s process for the evaluation of support professionals, which was piloted in 2013-2014 in a number of districts throughout the state. In this featured story, support professionals from Chariho, Lincoln, and Westerly share their perspectives on how the evaluation process helps document the role support professionals play in advancing student achievement.
