Three Green Bay Area Public Schools Named Wisconsin Schools of Recognition

State Superintendent Tony Evers has announced 132 Wisconsin School of Recognition awards for the 2012-13 academic year, an honor that recognizes success in education students from low-income families. Three Green Bay area public schools have received this significant honor, Chappell Elementary, Keller Elementary and Kennedy Elementary. This year marks the third consecutive year Kennedy has received a Wisconsin School of Recognition award.

“We’re proud to have three of our elementary schools recognized, and join the staff in celebrating,” said Superintendent Michelle Langenfeld. “Their efforts directly align with the district’s commitment to educate and support all children to ensure they are college, career and community ready.”

The schools receiving these awards have some of the highest poverty rates in the state based on free and reduced-price school lunch data. Student achievement in reading and mathematics was above average for schools from 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.

Schools meeting all criteria will receive a plaque at an October 2 awards ceremony at the State Capitol, and $1,000 for use by the school.
