The Colorado Department of Education recently announced that 192 schools in Colorado have been recognized with the “Governor’s Distinguished Improvement Award.” Among the schools recognized are two of EdisonLearning’s partnership schools in Denver – Wyatt-Edison Charter School and Omar D. Blair Charter School.
Wyatt-Edison Charter has been a partner with EdisonLearning since 1998 and has a solid history of outperforming comparable schools in the area. A partner since 2004, Omar Blair Charter has displayed sustained achievement growth and has consistently met AYP requirements.
The Colorado Governor’s Distinguished Improvement Awards are presented to schools that demonstrate exceptional student growth throughout a school year. On the school performance framework that is used by Colorado to evaluate schools, both Wyatt and Blair charter schools “exceed” expectations on the indicator related to longitudinal academic growth and “meet or exceed” expectations on the indicator related to academic growth gaps.
