Graduating high school seniors who are highly proficient in another language can receive the PSD Seal of Biliteracy on their diploma.
The Colorado Department of Education announced Wednesday that it is honoring 18 Poudre School District schools with prestigious awards for academic excellence and student academic growth.
Poudre School District students continued to perform at higher levels than their counterparts across the state on the 2018 Colorado Measures of Academic Success exams (CMAS).
The tests, administered last spring, assess performance in English Language Arts and Mathematics in grades 3-8 as well as Social Studies and Science in select grades. Student performance on the PSAT 9, PSAT 10, and SAT were also released with the standardized test scores.
Highlights from this year’s assessments include:
Fifth-grader Deondray Weddington smiled as he read his answer scrawled in orange crayon on a worksheet.
“My favorite place is the MAC bus,” he said.
In the long winter months, Zoe Bartel sometimes goes days without seeing the sun.
The swimmer, who has already qualified for Olympic Trials once before, finds herself swimming laps well before dawn. After the final bell rings, she’s back on the grind. That’s before she even starts her homework.
The world looks like a much brighter place to Mary Gilliland than it did just a few years ago.
PSD is proud of the accomplishments of all graduates and wishes each one the best of luck with their future plans! See class lists below. To see the Grads at a Glance video series, visit the PSD TV YouTube channel.
