About Our School

Patrick Murphy, Superintendent

Dannie Clark, Principal


McLane Elementary School was established in 1883 by pioneer families in the Delphi Valley. Our present school was completely renovated in 2019 and is the fourth McLane school building. Our school is comprised of classrooms, special use areas, play shed and three pod areas on an 11.5-acre campus. Adjacent to our campus is a 20-acre wetlands/forest that has become a science, math, writing and art laboratory, as well as the site of our school community service projects.

There is a preschool classroom located at McLane and the school also houses the district’s Life Skills Program for severely impacted students.

Special forest/wetlands program at McLane: McLane students, along with neighbors, community businesses and the Department of Transportation, have reforested over 40 acres of former farmland adjacent to McLane. In addition, our students, parents and scouts planted thousands of native shrubs and trees on the Evergreen Parkway overpass near our school. The forest is now used as a living, learning laboratory. The trail has been paved and our students have planted bulbs to enhance the path in the spring.

Washington Comprehensive Assessment Program

Washington students participate in state tests annually to assess their progress as well as the progress of our educational system as a whole.

Our state uses the Smarter Balanced assessment system, aligned to Washington’s K-12 Learning Standards. The scores below represent the percent of students meeting standard in three core subjects, ELA, Math, and for grades 5, 8, and 11, Science (Washington Comprehensive Assessment of Science or WCAS).

Measures of Academic Progress (MAP)

MAP is a district assessment that measures a student's developing skills through a series of questions that adapt to the child’s level of learning. Research on MAP indicates the results are highly accurate. The results help teachers measure growth and determine whether a student may need more support or more challenge.


What is the Rasch UnIT (RIT) scale?

When students finish their MAP Growth test, they receive a number called an RIT score for each area they are tested in (reading, language usage, math, or science). This score represents a student’s achievement level at any given moment and helps measure their academic growth over time. The RIT scale is a stable scale, like feet and inches, that accurately measures student performance, regardless of age, grades, or grade level. Like marking height on a growth chart, and being able to see how tall your child is at various points in time, you can also see how much they have grown between tests.

The higher the RIT score, the more achievement the student has in the subject. The student's percentile ranking and conditional growth percentile can show how much the student has achieved in comparison with their peers. You can also refer to the Comparative Data to Inform Instructional Decisions to understand how students are performing relative to other students in the same grade level according to our national norms.
