Rachelle Passed the WASL

Rachelle Spoelstra, a Kingston High School senior who was featured in a story Sunday on the WASL, learned late yesterday that she passed the math Washington Assessment of Student Learning on her fourth attempt … by one point.
“I was like, ‘Oh, God, I did it,'” Rachelle said.
The state’s Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction released results yesterday for students who took the WASL in the spring or submitted a “collection of evidence” in February as an approved alternative. Students who meet state criteria for the WASL will receive a certificate of academic achievement with their diploma.
Students who did not pass a portion of the WASL will have the chance to submit a collection of evidence in June provided they signed up by the deadline and/or they can retake the WASL in August.

  1. Good for her!

    I hope each school district will inform the public about the specific effect of the WASL graduation requirement for the “class of 2008.” From what the Sup’t of Public Instruction has previously said, there aren’t many who fail to graduate merely because of inability to pass some part of the WASL. But, how many are there in this situation in each of our county’s districts?
