Momentum Award
Earlier this week, Mr. Mann was notified that Riverside Elementary has been selected as a recipient of the Momentum Award. The Momentum Award is presented by the State Board of Education and recognizes schools for exceeding expectations in student growth for the year.

This award is based on the following criteria. 1. Schools must earn straight A’s on all Value-Added measures on the report card. 2. The school or district must have at least two Value-Added subgroups of students, which includes gifted, lowest 20% in achievement, and students with disabilities. 3. The award is subject to the Department’s review of the accuracy of the school’s submission of data for the 2017-2018 school year.

Congratulations to our staff, parents, and students for achieving this honor. This recognition has been a long time coming.  We all share in this honor and equally deserve it by working together to solve problems, “mining” data rich information from assessments/practices, and commitment to excellence.  We are proud of this Award!  Though we have a great deal of work before us and we plan to use this “momentum” to propel us to the next level.

Nondiscrimination and Access to Equal Educational Opportunity
Any form of discrimination or harassment can be devastating to an individual's academic progress, social relationship and/or personal sense of self-worth. As such, the Board of Education does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex (including sexual orientation or transgender identity), disability, age (except as authorized by law), religion, military status, ancestry, or genetic information (collectively, "Protected Classes") in its educational programs or activities.
 
The Board also does not discriminate on the basis of Protected Classes in its employment policies and practices as they relate to students, and does not tolerate harassment of any kind.

Equal educational opportunities shall be available to all students, without regard to the Protected Classes, age (unless age is a factor necessary to the normal operation or the achievement of any legitimate objective of the program/activity), place of residence within the boundaries of the District, or social or economic background, to learn through the curriculum offered in this District. Educational programs shall be designed to meet the varying needs of all students.
