  • Reward School 2016

    Two Westonka School District schools were once again recognized among Minnesota's top-performing Title I schools, as indicated by the state’s Multiple Measurements Ratings (MMR). In a list released last month by the Minnesota Department of Education, both of Westonka’s Title I schools—Grandview Middle School and Shirley Hills Primary School—earned Reward School status.

    The MMR is a 0 to 100 percent rating for all schools in the state. "The MMR measures a school's performance on state assessments, student academic growth, achievement gap reduction and graduation rates," Assistant Superintendent for Teaching and Learning Mark Femrite explained. Shirley Hills earned an 85.56 percent MMR this year, and Grandview earned an MMR of 84.19 percent.

    Every year, the top 15 percent of schools that receive Title I funding are recognized as Reward schools. This year, 103 schools received the Reward designation. Grandview and Shirley Hills are among only 28 Minnesota schools to earn the distinction five or more times.

    "Westonka's approach to student learning and our focus on college and career readiness are paying off and are reflected in our MMR," Femrite said.

    Title I is a federal education program that is designed to provide added academic support to students in schools that have higher than normal poverty rates compared to other schools in a school district. The other schools in the Westonka School District, Mound Westonka High School and Hilltop Primary School, are not designated Title I schools and are therefore ineligible for Reward School recognition.
