West recognized, again, as top school
space
For the sixth year, Antigo’s West Elementary School has been honored as among the best in the state in meeting the needs of disadvantaged students.

First grade instructors Diane Weberpal and Deb Tauer traveled to Madison recently to accept the award from State Superintendent Tony Evers on behalf of Principal Scott Farmer and the entire West teaching staff.

Evers praised West for being among 167 schools in the state that received Wisconsin Title I School of Recognition honors for the 2013-14 school year.

“Partnerships among teachers, parents, administrators, school staff members, and the community contribute to the academic success of students in schools that receive this honor,” Evers said.

Special recognition during the event was given to 14 high-achieving schools and 26 high-progress schools, with six schools earning both. There were five schools that earned Wisconsin Title I School of Recognition honors for 10 consecutive years, and nine schools that earned the award for a fifth consecutive year.

The day also included a series of workshops, along with a morning reception and lunch.

As a School of Recognition, West received a plaque and $500 for use on any school-related activity.

All award-winning schools receive federal Title I funding to provide services to high numbers or high percentages of economically disadvantaged children.

Schools receiving awards also met the state’s test participation, attendance and dropout goals as well as other criteria.
