Rockfield Elementary was recently named a High Achieving Title I School by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction.
Rockfield is one of 21 schools from 14 districts to be recognized as a High Achieving Title I school this year. There are three Title I award levels: High achieving, high progress, and beating the odds.
State Superintendent Tony Evers will honor the 167 schools that earned Wisconsin Title 1 School of Recognition awards at a ceremony Oct. 8 in Madison. Two representatives from the Germantown School District will attend the reception to receive the award, which includes a plaque, $500, and an opportunity for teachers to become part of a fellowship program.
Title I schools are schools that have a significant number of students from low-income families. Low-income is determined by federal standards used for the free-and-reduced lunch program in schools. Schools receiving awards also meet the state's test participation, attendance and dropout goals, as well as other criteria for the different award levels.
