The New York State Education Department has identified Hendrick Hudson High School as a 2018-19 Recognition School.
The school is among 562 high achieving schools recognized by the state for high academic achievement, student growth and graduation rates, under New York’s Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) Plan. The high school will receive a certificate of recognition from SED Commissioner MaryEllen Elia.
“The teachers and administrators at these Recognition Schools have taken to heart the critical mission of educating the whole child,” Board of Regents Chancellor Betty A. Rosa said. “Our priority is fostering equity for our children across New York. These schools serve as models of the levels of performance we seek for all schools to be able to achieve in the future.”
Recognition Schools are identified as such because they are among the top performing under ESSA for performance, student growth and/or graduation rates; met or exceeded either the school or state measures of interim progress for English language arts and mathematics, rate of Chronic Absenteeism, and College, Career, and Civic Readiness; and met the federally required 95 percent participation rate in the English language arts and mathematics assessments.
“I am excited to recognize these schools for their accomplishments and progress,” Commissioner Elia said. “I commend the teachers, administrators, staff, parents and students for the hard work and dedication they bring each day—it is truly paying off.”
