Jefferson & Keller named WI Schools of Recognition

Jefferson & Keller WI Schools of RecognitionCongratulations to Jefferson and Keller elementary schools for being named Wisconsin Title I Schools of Recognition for the 2015-16 school year.

Specifically Jefferson and Keller were named “Beating-the-Odds” schools, which means they are in the top 25 percent of high-poverty schools in the state. They have demonstrated above-average student achievement in reading and mathematics when compared to schools from similarly sized districts, schools, grade configurations, and poverty levels.

State Superintendent Tony Evers said in a press release, “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.”
