Innovative school

Summit School, 612 S. McDonald Road, in the Central Valley School District, has been named one of 22 Washington State Innovative Schools by the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction.

The school was chosen for best implementing “bold, creative and innovative” ideas.

“We are extremely proud of our Summit students, staff and parents for this well-deserved recognition,” said CV Superintendent Ben Small. “The creative learning environment at Summit enriches students as well as our entire district.”

The kindergarten through eighth grade school has been open since 2004 and serves 345 students.

The Central Valley School Board will not hold its regular meeting Monday due to a potential lack of a quorum.

The next CV School Board meeting will be Jan. 9 at 6:30 p.m. at the district office, 19307 E. Cataldo.
