Wilkinson Co. School District Receives Statewide Award The Woodville Republican Andy Lewis, Publisher
The Wilkinson County School District was among 59 Mississippi school districts that were recognized by the Mississippi School Boards Association (MSBA) on November 11 with an award for outstanding student achievement, based on student performance last spring on testing requirements in the Mississippi accountability program. Wilkinson County School District board members were on hand for the special awards luncheon in the 2014 MSBA Lighthouse School Leader Awards Program.
The district was honored with the other 3 school districts in the Torch category of the MSBA Lighthouse School Leader awards. The Torch Award recognizes school districts that have an overall grade of ‘C,’ with at least one school graded ‘B’ or above and no schools below ‘C,’ based on State Accountability Standards administered by the Mississippi Department of Education. The district’s qualifying school was Finch Elementary, with a grade of ‘B.’ Approximately 350 school board members and superintendents across the state attended the MSBA Lighthouse School Leaders Awards Luncheon in Jackson on November 11.
The MSBA Lighthouse School Leader Awards Program was established by the Mississippi School Boards Association at the beginning of the 2003-04 school year, in recognition of the unsung efforts of school districts to meet more rigorous state and federal accountability standards.
