MADISON — State Superintendent Tony Evers praised Bruce-Guadalupe Middle School (BGMS) for being among 167 schools in the state that received Wisconsin Title I School of Recognition honors for the 2013-14 school year during a special October 8 ceremony at the State Capitol in Madison.
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. This is BGMS' third consecutive year of being named a School of Recognition.
Evers, pictured with Bruce-Guadalupe Community School Principal Pascual Rodriguez and Bruce-Guadalupe Middle School Principal Santiago Navarro, gave special recognition during the event to 14 High Achieving schools and 26 High Progress schools, with six schools earning both High Achieving and High Progress honors.
“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.
