2017-2018 Title I School of Recognition Award

Wisc Title 1 SRC

 

The Abbotsford Middle School and High School have once again been awarded the Title I School of Recognition Award for "beating the Odds" for 2017-2018. This makes the 13th year in a row that the MS/HS has been a recipient of this award.

Please join me in congratulating the staff, administration, parents, and students of the MS/HS for their part in achieving this prestigious award. 

 

Wisconsin Title I School of Recognition Criteria

Schools receive federal Title I aid when they have significant numbers of students from low-income families. The schools that earn recognition also must meet the state’s test-participation, attendance, and dropout goals as well as additional award criteria:

High-Achieving Schools

  • Have achievement gaps that are less than 3 points between student groups or show evidence of reducing gaps
  • Demonstrate high achievement at the school level

High-Progress Schools

  • Fall within the top 10 percent of schools experiencing growth in reading and mathematics for elementary and middle school students or the top 10 percent of schools with the greatest improvement in high school graduation rates
  • Have achievement gaps that are less than 3 points between student groups or show evidence of reducing gaps

Beating-the-Odds Schools

  • Are in the top 25 percent of high-poverty schools in the state
  • Have above-average student achievement in reading and mathematics when compared to schools from similarly sized districts, schools, grade configurations, and poverty levels
