HANOVER JR/SR HIGH SCHOOL EARNS PRESTIGIOUS AWARD

Each year, the Colorado Department of Education recognizes public schools  as Centers of Excellence in the state that enroll a student population of which at least 75 percent are at-risk pupils and that demonstrate the highest rates of student longitudinal growth, as measured by the Colorado Growth Model. On the school performance framework that is used by the state to evaluate schools, these schools have demonstrated impressive results on the indicator relating to longitudinal academic growth. This award program was established in 2009 by the Education Accountability Act of 2009. Award recipients were named at a ceremony on March 1st in Denver. Only nine school districts had a school receive this prestigious award, including Hanover Junior-Senior High School in the Hanover School District. Principal, Danielle Van Esselstine, and Superintendent, Dr. Grant Schmidt, accepted the award from State Board of Education members and the Commissioner for the Colorado Department of Education.
