The state Department of Public Instruction has chosen Jefferson and Lincoln Elementary schools in Beaver Dam as 2018-19 Wisconsin Schools of Recognition for their academic achievement in the areas of reading and math.

“When you have great people with great purpose, focused on the right things, success is inevitable,” Beaver Dam Superintendent Mark DiStefano said in a press release. “I couldn’t be more proud of the staff, students, parents and community for their commitment to excellence in education as we strive to lead the way in student growth and achievement.”

Lincoln Elementary School has received the award for eight consecutive years while Jefferson Elementary School has received the award for six consecutive years, DiStefano said in the press release.

Wisconsin Schools of Recognition are acknowledged for their exemplar academic achievement through rigorous programming and attention to individual student needs. Student achievement in reading and mathematics at the award-winning schools is in the top 25 percent of schools from similarly sized districts, grade configurations and demographics.

Of the 1,217 elementary schools in Wisconsin, Jefferson and Lincoln Elementary Schools are two of only 114 to be recognized by the state. They are recognized as Beating the Odds Schools for high achievement in math and reading.

The DPI has been awarding this commendation since 2004. Beaver Dam Unified School District has received 25 Wisconsin School of Recognition honors since 2009.

Jefferson and Lincoln Elementary Schools will be recognized at a ceremony at the state Capitol on May 20.
