District 109 Earns Academic Excellence Award
Local schools honored for academic achievements.
Not one or two but all six District 109 schools earned 2010 Academic Excellence Awards.
Handed out by the Illinois State Board of Education, the award recognizes the top schools in the state. This is the third consecutive year all District 109 schools have obtained the honor.
“Each school has its own unique character and personality,” District 109 Superintendent Dr. Renee Goier said. “But these awards prove that all District 109 schools are equal in their high level of academic achievement and their commitment to providing an excellent education to every student.”
Out of 4,000 schools tested, 459 earned the award. According to school officials, District 109 is one of only six districts in Illinois to have more than five schools make the cut.
