Capitol ceremony celebrates 2017-18 Wisconsin Title I Schools of Recognition
MADISON — State Superintendent Tony Evers praised Kennedy Elementary School for being among 135 schools in the state that received Wisconsin Title I School of Recognition honors for the 2017-18 school year during a special May 21 ceremony at the State Capitol in Madison.
The state superintendent recognized 24 High-Achieving schools and 40 High-Progress schools; 11 schools earned both High-Achieving and High-Progress honors. Five schools earned an award for a fifth consecutive year.
“Partnerships among teachers, parents, administrators, school staff members, and the community contribute to the academic success of students in schools that receive this honor,” Evers said. Kennedy Elementary qualified as a High-Achieving Title I school as a result of their students have achievement gaps that are less than three (3) points between student groups, show evidence of reducing gaps and demonstrate high achievement at the school.
