The Brighton #1 School District was presented a School of Recognition Award by Tony Evers of the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction on Monday, March 14 at the State Capitol in Madison.  Brighton School was one of 11 schools across the state earning the award for high achievement and high progress.

Brighton was named a high achieving school because all Annual Measurable Objectives for academics were met, achievement gaps between student groups were reduced by more than 3 percentage points, and high achievement was demonstrated with 82.4% of students scoring proficient or advanced in English/language arts on the Badger Exam and 67.2% of students scoring proficient or advanced in math on the Badger Exam.  Brighton was also named a high progress school as it falls within the top 10 percent of schools experiencing growth in reading and math.

“This award recognizes 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,” Evers said.  “These efforts will help ensure that every student graduates college and career ready,”
