MADISON (WKOW) - State Superintendent Tony Evers is recognizing 132 Wisconsin schools for being among the 2012-2013 Wisconsin School of Recognition award winners.
A ceremony will be held for the recipients at the State Capitol on Tuesday.
To be eligible for Wisconsin School of Recognition honors, each school was among the top quartile for student poverty rates for its school type, based on free and reduced-price school lunch data. Eight schools have earned School of Recognition awards for five consecutive years, and they will receive a special flag to mark their achievement.
Additionally, student achievement on statewide reading and mathematics assessments in each school was higher than the state average for similarly sized districts, schools, grade configurations, and poverty levels.
All award-winning schools receive federal Title I funding to provide services to high numbers or high percentages of economically disadvantaged children.
