Eight MPS schools are 2019 Wisconsin Schools of Recognition

Eight MPS schools learned this week that they are among 114 schools being recognized for success in educating students. All the schools receive federal Title I funding to provide services to high numbers or high percentages of economically disadvantaged families. The schools that earn recognition also must meet the state’s test participation, attendance, and dropout goals.

Honored schools will receive a plaque during an award ceremony at the State Capitol on May 20. MPS schools were recognized in several categories.

“I am very encouraged by this level of progress in our schools,” said Dr. Keith P. Posley, MPS Superintendent. “I want to thank our students, teachers, staff, and community partners who have come together, tried new ideas, and increased success.”

“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,” said State Superintendent Carolyn Stanford Taylor.

Congratulations to our honored schools!
