In effort to keep parents and community members informed regarding important issues affecting our schools, this letter is written to explain changes in regard to the new legislation centered on student achievement and accountability.  As the new state assessment (Smarter Balanced Testing) data builds its foundation, and state legislation defines the new ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act), schools are held accountable for participation rates.  Goldendale School District met participation rates of 95% for all students in all three schools.  Find specific and detailed data regarding Goldendale’s performance, as well as how we compare with state and other schools in our state at:
