The honor recognizes success in educating students from low-income families.

MADISON (WEAU) — State Superintendent Tony Evers announced 167 Wisconsin Title I School of Recognition awards for the 2013-14 academic year, an honor that recognizes success in educating students from low-income families.

“What a great way to start the school year,” Evers said. “By recognizing
schools for their success at educating our students, we put the focus where it belongs: on our children.”

All award-winning schools receive federal Title I funding to provide
services to high numbers or high percentages of economically disadvantaged children. Schools received awards in three categories:
High-Achieving, High-Progress, and Beating the Odds based on specific
criteria.

This year’s 167 Wisconsin Title I School of Recognition Award recipients include 14 High-Achieving and 26 High-Progress schools. Six schools earned awards in both the High-Achieving and High-Progress categories.

Overall, 131 elementary schools, 23 middle or junior high schools, and 13 high schools earned awards.

The state superintendent will host an awards program at the State Capitol on Oct. 8 to further recognize Wisconsin Title I School of Recognition award recipients. Each school will receive a plaque and $500 for use by the school.

During the awards ceremony, nine schools will receive flags for earning the Wisconsin Title I School of
Recognition award for five consecutive years, and five schools will receive banners for earning the award for
10 consecutive years. One school — Marengo Valley School in the Ashland School District — has earned the award
for all 11 years of the program.

“The staff and administration of these schools are committed to breaking the link between poverty and
low academic achievement through rigorous programming and attention to student needs,” Evers said. “The
partnerships these schools create among teachers, parents, administrators, other school staff members, and the
community provide an educational environment that supports children’s learning so our students graduate college
and career ready.”
