2019 Recognition School

17 SCHOOLS HONORED FOR STUDENTS’ ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT

Secretary of Education Susan Bunting recognized 17 schools from across the state for their students’ academic achievement today.

The students showed exceptional performance on state tests or made remarkable progress in closing the achievement gaps between student groups, including those from low-income families, racial minority groups and students with disabilities.

Each building named a 2019 Recognition School will receive an $8,000 award. Funding for the awards comes from the state's school improvement funds. Two buildings were named a School of Continued Excellence because they earned Recognition School honors last year and had outstanding performance again this year. Those schools are not eligible for a financial award again until 2020. Two buildings also will be recognized as National ESEA Distinguished Schools.

The Recognition School awards were created by legislation passed by the Delaware General Assembly in 2009.
