Lannon Elementary Recognized for State Award
The elementary school was awarded this honor for a number of reasons, which included earning a “Significantly Exceeding Expectations” rating on the new Wisconsin School Report Card.
Lannon Elementary School was awarded for making their school a Wisconsin High-Achieving & High-Progress School by the Department of Public Instruction.
Staff members were recognized at the March 5 Hamilton School Board meeting for their contributions, according to the board highlights.
The school was awarded because of:
- earned a “Significantly Exceeding Expectations” rating on the new Wisconsin School Report Card;
- met measurable objectives for all students and all student subgroups;
- had minimal achievement gaps or showed evidence of reducing gaps between student subgroups; and
- met test participation, absenteeism and dropout goals.
Principal Dick Ladd, in accepting the School Board’s appreciation and accolades, said the state award was significant to Lannon staff members because it “was not an award that we won, but one that was earned.”
