State Superintendent Tony Evers announced Lincoln as one of the 178 Wisconsin Title I School of Recognition awards for the 2016-17 academic year, an honor that recognizes success in educating students from low-income families.

“These schools stand out for their efforts to educate our kids,” Evers said. “They are staffed by dedicated educators who work with parents, families and the school community to support the needs of all kids through rigorous programming and attention to student needs.”

All award-winning schools receive federal Title I funding to provide services to high numbers or high percentages of economically disadvantaged children.

During the May 1 ceremony at the State Capitol, the state superintendent will recognize 21 High-Achieving schools and 21 High-Progress schools as identified by results from 2015-16 statewide assessments; nine schools will be recognized for earning both High-Achieving and High-Progress honors.
