Capitol ceremony celebrates 2014-15
Wisconsin Title I Schools of Recognition
MADISON — State Superintendent Tony Evers offered congratulations to Melrose-Mindoro School District, Mindoro Elementary, for being among 173 schools in the state that received Wisconsin Title I School of Recognition honors for the 2014-15 school year. “These schools are examples of the success we need in all of our schools to close the achievement gap,” Evers said.
The schools were recognized during a special Oct. 13 ceremony at the State Capitol in Madison hosted by Deputy State Superintendent Mike Thompson.

During the program, special recognition went to seven High-Achieving schools and 29 High-Progress Schools. Eight schools earned both High-Achieving and High-Progress honors. Three schools earned the award for a 10th consecutive year, while 10 schools earned the award for a fifth consecutive year.
“This is a definite team award. This shows the dedication between our parents, staff, and students. At this level, it is important that we have a sustained partnership with our parents and Title I Program. It is advantageous for everyone to be involved, we have amazing instructors who put in the time and effort, and our students need to work hard. Although this is a building level award this is a good example of cross-over instruction that is occurring in all grades PK-5,” said Corey Peterson, PK-8 Principal.
