Timberline High School in Lacey was one of 46 schools to receive a Career Guidance Award of Excellence from the state Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction on Tuesday.
Each of the schools were recognized for having “highly effective, inclusive guidance and counseling programs,” according to an OSPI news release. The schools also participate in the state’s Career Guidance Washington, a career- and college readiness program that gives students extra support while working on their High School & Beyond Plans.
“My vision is that we prepare every student for career, college and life,” state Superintendent Randy Dorn said in the news release. “These schools are preparing their students for college and decreasing college remediation rates.”
