BDUSD Schools Receive National Recognition

Sep 29, 2016 12:23PM, Published by Jim, Categories: Today, Community



A third school in the Beaver Dam Unified School District has been honored this week as a National Blue Ribbon School of Distinction. The United States Department of Education announced today that Wilson Elementary School has been chosen as a 2016 National Blue Ribbon School. Wilson joins both South Beaver Dam and Lincoln Elementary schools as National Blue Ribbon Schools of Distinction.

The award recognizes Wilson School students for their overall academic excellence. The United States Department of Education will recognize only 329 public and private schools this year. This is not an award in which a school merely submits an application; the schools are chosen by the Department of Education based on the student academic performance on state assessments. The award affirms the hard work of Beaver Dam students, families, and the world-class staff who comprise the Wilson School learning community and the Beaver Dam Unified School District as a whole. The National Blue Ribbon School flag gracing a school’s building is widely recognized as a symbol of exemplary teaching and learning.

All school-academic recognitions are a reflection of the exemplary school system that is thriving in Beaver Dam. When we celebrate the successes of Wilson School students, we celebrate the hard work and success of all students, families, and employees who make up our learning community. Success does not occur in a vacuum. The Beaver Dam Unified School

District will continue to work vigorously to guide students and empower futures while leading the way in student growth and academic achievement. It is another great day to live, work, and learn in Beaver Dam!
