Marysville School District Receives “Momentum Award” for Student Growth

Marysville Exempted Village School District received the Momentum Award from the state board of education on Tuesday, recognizing them for exceeding expectations in student growth for the year. Bunsold Middle School and Mill Valley Elementary also received individual recognition as schools for their performance.

“This is what we are most proud of—growth. This recognition speaks to the direction of our district and where we are headed with personalized learning, impacting every child,” said Marysville Superintendent Diane Mankins.

To qualify for the award, schools must earn straight A’s on all “value-added” measures on the state report card and the school must have at least two value-added subgroups of students, which includes gifted, lowest 20 percent in achievement and students with disabilities.

Following a series of community forums—engaging parents, educators, and community leaders—Marysville leadership and staff developed a vision for the future of their school district: meeting the needs of every student through personalized learning. They partnered with KnowledgeWorks to help them achieve their mission of radically changing their learning ecosystem.

“As a partner in this work, watching Marysville operationalize their vision and grow exponentially has been wonderful,” said Robin Kanaan, Director of Teaching and Learning at KnowledgeWorks. “They have developed a continuum of transformation for the district that is personalizing the journey for each school. It’s fantastic to be a part of this work.”
