Tuesday, April 28, 2020 -

Liverpool Central School District Superintendent of Schools Photo of Elmcrest Elementary teachers and staff.Dr. Mark F. Potter is pleased to announce that Elmcrest Elementary has been identified as a Recognition School by the New York State Education Department.

EE is one of 582 state public schools to receive this honor for the 2019-2020 school year. Recognition Schools are those with high academic achievement and strong academic progress, that also perform acceptably for all subgroups for which they are accountable.

“Recognition Schools across the state demonstrate the relentless commitment of teachers, administrators, staff and parents, without whom this growth would not have been possible,” NYSED Interim Commissioner Shannon Tahoe.

To be identified as a Recognition School, a school must:


  • have an accountability status of “Good Standing;”
  • receive a Level 4 (top) Rating for academic performance and progress;
  • not receive a Level 1 (lowest) Rating on any accountability indicators (English language arts and mathematics progress; chronic absenteeism; English language proficiency; college, career and civic readiness)
  • not have any student subgroups identified as needing extra support
  • have at least a 95 percent participation rate on state reading and math exams


“I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Mrs. Valentine and the entire EE community on achieving this designation,” Potter said. “We are extremely proud of the hard work and dedication of EE’s teachers, staff members, students and parents.”
