Three local Lee County Public Schools have been recognized by the State Board of Education Exemplar Performance by receiving the coveted Continuous Improvement Award. Lee County residents proudly and gratefully acknowledge the efforts of the staff at Jonesville Middle School, Lee High School, and St. Charles Elementary School for their tireless efforts.
Having officially recognized 447 schools in six different school divisions for high student achievement, continuous improvement or innovative practices according to the Board’s exemplar performance school recognition program. These awards are based on performance and practice during the 2018-2019 school term and preceding years.
The recognized schools include 71 schools that earned the Board of Education’s Highest Achievement Award, 375 schools that earned the Board of Education Continuous Improvement Award and one school that earned the Board of Education Innovative Practice Award.
“The criteria for the exemplar performance awards are designed to incentivize schools to make the changes in instruction, policy, support services and practice required to make progress toward meeting the Board of Education’s objective of achieving equity in opportunities and outcomes for all students. The increase in the number of awards earned this year is evidence of the progress our schools were making toward this objective before the pandemic forced the closure of schools in March,” stated Board of Education President Daniel A. Gecker.
Superintendent of Public Instruction, James Lane said, “I congratulate the principals, teachers, support professionals and students of all of these schools and divisions for the achievement, innovations and hard work recognized by these awards. I believe the success of these schools and school divisions will inspire learning communities across the commonwealth as they plan for the reopening of school and prepare to meet the instructional and social emotional needs of students, especially students most impacted by the closure this spring.
