Voorheesville’s Clayton A. Bouton High School Identified as 2019-2020 Recognition School

Voorheesville’s Clayton A. Bouton High School is one of 582 high-achieving and high-progress schools identified as a 2019-20 Recognition School, the New York State Education Department (NYSED) announced on April 23. CBHS serves 354 students in grade 9 through grade 12.

Under New York’s Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) Plan, Recognition Schools are those that have high academic achievement, student growth and graduation rate, and have made progress during the 2018-19 school year. As a 2019-20 Recognition School, CBHS will receive a certificate of recognition from NYSED Interim Commissioner Shannon Tahoe.

“This honor recognizes the district’s commitment to providing the support and resources students need to succeed,” said Superintendent of Schools Frank Macri. “This honor does not come easy and wouldn’t be possible without High School Principal Laura Schmitz and her dedicated staff.” 

This is the second year the district has been a Recognition School.

The complete Recognition Schools list is available on the State Education Department website. Further details on the Recognition School identification methodology can be found on the Department’s ESSA Accountability Designations website.
