Michigan Ave. Elementary wins statewide award

Posted: Updated:

CLEVELAND, TN (WRCB) -  Michigan Avenue Elementary School in Bradley County has been selected as a Tennessee Department of Education "State Distinguished Title 1 School" for the 2011 – 2012 school year.

Principal Robert Brittingham said, "We received the award for significantly closing the achievement gap over the past two years.  I'm very proud of our entire school community." The school will be honored at a State Board of Education meeting in the spring.

Each year, four Tennessee schools are recognized as Title I Distinguished Schools, representing a track record of superior progress in Title I programs. Sponsored by the National Title I Association, awards are offered on a national and state level to highly successful schools serving a large population of economically disadvantaged students that succeed at accomplishing exceptional student achievement or closing the achievement gap.

Title I schools eligible for the Distinguished Schools award must have 35 percent poverty or greater, have met performance standards for consecutive years, use research-based teaching and professional development successfully and engage partnerships with parents and the community.  Distinguished schools are recognized in two categories: 1) schools that have exceeded its adequate yearly progress for two or more consecutive years NCLB and 2) schools that have significantly closed the achievement gap between student groups.
