Did You Know...

Did you know that Tenino, pronounced T9O, is an Indian word that means “fork in the road?” However, the actual city name comes from the fact that Tenino used to be a railroad stop 1090, or ten-nine-oh. The name stuck when the Northern Pacific Railroad Company established a presence in the area, and because of the railroad stop number, renamed the city Tenino.

Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) Information

As part of the No Child Left behind (NCLB) Act of 2001, we are required to notify parents/guardians when our school has not made Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP). AYP is determined by:

  1. The percentage of students participating in the MSP/SBAC
  2. The percentage of students meeting the standards in reading and math
  3. Unexcused absence rate for Grades 3-5.

The NCLB Act of 2001 also requires districts to inform parents/guardians of options they have as a result of your child’s school not making AYP for two or more consecutive years.

Please take a moment to review the important information below about our progress and how Supplemental Educational Services (SES) can benefit your child.
