East Linden Elementary Named 2020 Hall of Fame School

Columbus, Ohio – The Ohio Association of Elementary School Administrators (OAESA) announced that East Linden Elementary in the Columbus City School District has been selected as a 2020 OAESA Hall of Fame School.

The Hall of Fame School Award recognizes schools that engage faculty, students and the community to provide a quality school experience. “Our teacher teams, families, and partner support network all play an important roll in this tremendous honor,” says Principal Cheryl Jones. The school staff submitted an extensive application documenting the effectiveness of their educational program in several areas and participated in a rigorous site review process. Hall of Fame Schools were competitively selected by committees of OAESA members. 

“East Linden Elementary School’s partnership with Liberty Leadership Development has enhanced the overall Gap Closing score, as reported by the Ohio Department of Education,” Dr. Randall Sampson. East Linden achieved 88 points for English Language Arts, 100 points in Math, and 100 points for English Learners for a combined Gap Closing score of 96.3 and an overall Gap Closing letter grade of “B” in 2019.  “Through highly effective intervention and instructional strategies, the team closed achievement gaps across every student group,” says Jones.
