Northview Elementary School and Eisenhower Middle School have both received Challenge Award Certificates of Merit from the Confidence in Kansas Public Education Task Force. The award recognizes schools for outstanding achievement and uncommon accomplishment based on Kansas Assessment results from 2013 and other qualifying factors, specifically the sample size, ethnicity and socio-economic status of those taking the test. Northview Elementary School received two awards as a result of its performance on the 4th grade Math and Reading Assessments. Eisenhower Middle School received one award as a result of its performance on the 7th grade Reading Assessment.
The Confidence Task Force is a not-for-profit corporation whose primary purpose is to strengthen confidence in Kansas public education and to increase awareness of the positive aspects of public education in this state.
Northview and Eisenhower will receive awards at a recognition dinner Nov. 13 in Junction City.
