State Superintendent Tony Evers congratulated Whitman School for being among 169 schools in the state that received Wisconsin Title I School of Recognition honors for the 2015-16 school year during a special March 14th ceremony at the State Capitol in Madison.
Evers welcomed, from left: Ms. Sally Schumacher (Principal) and Ms. Betsy Turner (G.E. Coach) to the recognition event. Whitman School received the School of Recognition honor in the “Beating the Odds” category.
“These awards recognize the work of students and their parents along with teachers, school administrators, and school staff members to break the link between poverty and low academic achievement. These efforts will help us ensure that every student graduates college and career ready,” Evers said.
