Four OASD Elementary Schools Receive State Recognition Award from Wisconsin DPI

135 Schools Statewide Honored

OCONOMOWOC, WI- April 16, 2017. Greenland Elementary, Ixonia Elementary, Park Lawn Elementary, and Summit Elementary are four of the 135 schools around the state that are being recognized by the Wisconsin DPI for their success in educating students.  Summit Elementary was one of just 11 schools in the state to be named as both a High Achieving School and a High Progress School.  Greenland Elementary, Ixonia Elementary, and Park Lawn Elementary were among 40 schools across the state that were recognized as High-Progress Schools. Schools receiving awards will be honored at a recognition ceremony at the State Capitol on Monday, May 21. 

Each of these schools receives federal Title I funding to provide services to high percentages of economically disadvantaged families.  Meadow View Elementary does not meet the funding criteria based on their percentage of economically disadvantaged families and as a result, could not be considered by the DPI for awards.

Superintendent Dr. Roger Rindo stated, “I am so proud of the incredible efforts of our staff and leaders in these schools.  As a district, we have maintained an emphasis on both student achievement and student growth, with a focus on all students and student subgroups.  These awards are a great recognition of the hard work going on in our schools.”

Schools that receive Title I funding have notable student numbers that come from low-income families. Schools that earn this recognition must also meet the state’s test-participation, attendance, and dropout rates as well as additional criteria.

Wisconsin Title I School of Recognition Criteria:

High-Achieving Schools

High-Progress Schools

Beating-the-Odds Schools
