Milwaukee Public Schools has set another record for the number of schools awarded by an independent, statewide organization for promoting positive behaviors: 107 schools, up from 100 last year and 79 the year before, received recognition. MPS also broke records for the number of schools recognized in academics: 90 schools were awarded for reading, up from 62 last year and 39 the year before; and 65 schools were awarded in math, up from 52 last year and 22 the year before.

Schools throughout the state of Wisconsin were recognized at Bronze, Silver or Gold levels through Wisconsin Rtl Center’s rubric for recognition. Out of the 13 Wisconsin schools that received a Gold designation, eight are MPS schools. A full list of all ranked Wisconsin schools can be found here.

The honors come from the Wisconsin RtI Center, a statewide organization that helps schools implement a research-based multi-tiered system of support. These frameworks include Response to Intervention (RtI) behavior – Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) which focus on building strong school environments and providing supports to children. Learn more about the awards and how they are given here.

“A positive school environment helps students learn, and we are honored that so many of our schools are being recognized by an independent organization for doing just that,” MPS Superintendent Dr. Darienne Driver said. “Meeting the individual learning needs of all students is equally important and a growing number of MPS schools are being honored for that work as well. Congratulations to our educators, support staff, and district-level administrators, as well as students and families, for making this happen.”

Over 100 MPS schools were recognized at Bronze, Silver or Gold levels. A complete list of school awards is below.
