As a high-achieving school, Lannon demonstrated high achievement at the school level, and had achievement gaps less than three points between student groups or showed evidence of reducing gaps.

State Superintendent Tony Evers welcomed Lannon Title 1 paraprofessional Jean Fero and principal Brian Balfany to the recognition event.

“Partnerships among teachers, parents, administrators, school staff members and the community contribute to the academic success of students in schools that receive this honor,” Evers said.

The Wisconsin Title I School of Recognition awards highlight schools that have demonstrated success in educating students from low-income families. To be eligible, schools must receive federal Title I funding to provide services for economically disadvantaged children.
