Northwoods Community Elementary School receives state recognition
Northwoods Community Elementary School (NCES) is one of the schools receiving the Wisconsin Title I School of Recognition Award for Beating the Odds.
This category is for schools in the top 25% of high-poverty schools in the state with above-average student achievement in reading and mathematics when compared to schools from similarly sized districts, schools, grade configurations, and poverty levels
“I love the start of the school year because it’s a chance to set the pace for a successful year ahead,” said State Superintendent Tony Evers as he announced 173 Wisconsin Title I School of Recognition awards. “These schools are off to a strong start to the 2014-15 school year.”
Schools meeting the recognition award criteria will receive a plaque at an Oct. 13 ceremony at the State Capitol and $500 for use by the school. During the awards ceremony, three schools will receive banners for earning the Wisconsin Title I School of Recognition award for 10 consecutive years, and 10 schools will receive flags for earning the award for five consecutive years. This year’s 173 Wisconsin Title I School of Recognition Award recipients include 133 elementary schools, 29 middle or junior high schools, and 11 high schools.
