As part of the Oklahoma ESEA flexibility waiver, the Oklahoma Department of Education is required to annually identify the highest-performing schools in the state or schools that have made the most significant progress in student achievement as "Reward" schools.

Woodlands Elementary has been awarded the distinction of a “High Performance Reward School” for meeting the following criteria set forth by the Oklahoma State Department of Education. Woodlands received an A- this year on their site A – F Report Card. The calculations and award are all handled by the Office of Accountability located at the Oklahoma State Department of Education.

Superintendent David Pennington is shown congratulating students at their morning assembly. He is also shown with Woodlands principal Tim Williams and Woodland’s Eagle.

“The entire district is extremely proud of the Woodland Eagles, teachers and students alike," Dr. Pennington said. "Woodlands Elementary has an established record of excellence, and we all commend them for receiving this distinguished honor.”
