MSES earns state award

January 9, 2002

Marion Springs Elementary School has been recognized for having attained the Standard of Excellence on state-wide assessments in reading. MSES recently received a certificate from the State Board of Education in recognition of its accomplishment.

Attaining the Standard of Excellence requires having a significant portion of the student body scoring at proficient and advanced levels.

"Attaining the Standard of Excellence is the mark of a school where student learning has been made a high priority," said State Board of Education Chairman I.B. "Sonny" Rundell. "This accomplishment is something in which the entire community can take pride."

This is the second year MSES has received the Standard of Excellence in reading.

Baldwin administrators said they were pleased with the award.

"I think that's wonderful," Supt. James White said. "It sets the standards for our other schools to get them to the level where they will be recognized for Standards of Excellence as well."

"This award tells me that our efforts have been successful and that our entire staff is doing an excellent job of helping students achieve," MSES principal Gus Wegner said.
