Representatives from McVay Elementary School received a 2013 SOAR Award for High Progress from Battelle for Kids at a reception held Nov. 11 at the Greater Columbus Convention Center.

Sixteen Ohio schools and 14 Ohio school districts were honored. These annual awards acknowledge Ohio schools and districts participating in SOAR, Battelle for Kids' school improvement collaborative, for their academic progress in multiple grade levels and subjects over the last school year (2012--2013).

SOAR represents 110 Ohio school districts and is one of the country's largest value-added initiatives.
