• Dixon Elementary was recognized for meeting the Prepared Level of Achievement. This means that DES has effectively implemented systems and processes to support global readiness and that many components of global education are embedded schoolwide.

    To achieve these designations, we completed a rigorous application process that included submission of an application with narratives and links to evidences that supported the self-assessment rating along with a successful site visit by a state evaluation team. In addition to having met the criteria for Prepared or Model designations, Dixon met the minimum student achievement requirements for the average composite on statewide achievement assessments and for growth.
