Congratulations to our 3rd and 4th grade students from 2011-2012
who earned the 2012 Challenge Award in Reading!
The Confidence in Kansas Public Education Task Force has identified 70 schools in 46 Kansas public school districts as recipients of the 2012 Challenge Awards. The Challenge Awards are designed to recognize Kansas schools that are making a significant difference in student achievement despite facing significant challenges in school population.
The certificates recognize performance on state assessments in reading and/or mathematics that exceeds normal expectations based on the socio-economic status and sample size of those taking the test.
“The Challenge Awards recognize schools that provide tangible proof of the long-held contention that all children can learn,” said Charles Volland, chairman of the Confidence in Kansas Public Education Task Force. “These schools are to be commended for overcoming the very real challenges that poverty poses to education.”
