DPI: The 169 public schools all have two things in common: high levels of poverty and remarkable successes in educating their students. They are Wisconsin Title I Schools of Recognition for the 2015-16 school year.
“Congratulations to these schools. They are examples of the academic success we need in all of our schools to close achievement gaps,” said State Superintendent Tony Evers in announcing the Wisconsin Title I Schools of Recognition for the 2015-16 school year. “These awards recognize the work of students and their parents along with teachers, school administrators, and school staff members to break the link between poverty and low academic achievement. Their efforts will help us ensure that every student graduates college and career ready.”
