Celebrating Success!

The Creswell Chronicle recently reported on the success:

Creswell one of 19 Oregon districts to meet ELL AMAO targets

Oregon school districts are struggling to meet federal targets for students learning English, according to the just-released Annual Measurable Achievement Objectives (AMAO) report for the 2011-2012 school year.

According to Creswell School District (CSD) Superintendent Todd Hamilton, Creswell was one of just 19 school districts statewide to meet those federal objectives.

There were 46 students enrolled in Creswell School District ELL programs during the 2011-2012 school year, approximately 3.5 percent of the district’s student population.

Creslane Elementary School’s Primary-level ELL team consists of teacher Bethany Cross and educational assistant Vicky Snyder, while the Secondary-level ELL team, which provides services to both Creswell Middle and Creswell High School students, consists of teacher Kara Freske and educational assistant Lorena Pearson.

“It’s through the dedication and hard work of these teams in concert with our schools’ staff that our ELL students are being successful,” Hamilton said. READ MORE at The Creswell Chronicle
