Local schools awarded Title I recognition
For Hub City Times
MADISON — State Superintendent Carolyn Stanford Taylor announced 114 Wisconsin Title I School of Recognition awards for 2019, an honor that recognizes success in educating students from families who are economically disadvantaged.
Among the schools awarded, Greenwood Elementary was named as a High Progress & Beating the Odds school. Abbotsford Middle/Senior High and Granton High School were recognized as Beating the Odds schools.
“Students living in poverty often find themselves standing outside the dreams we hold for our youth,” Stanford Taylor said. “To bring students back into the dream requires skill, knowledge, and commitment. Thank you, educators, support staff, families, partners – everyone who helped schools earn these awards. You are building a better future for your students and our state.”
The award-winning schools are among those receiving federal Title I funding to provide services to high numbers or high percentages of economically disadvantaged children. During a May 20 ceremony at the State Capitol, the schools will be honored.
