Glenn Livingston Elementary in Cody, Highland Park Elementary in Sheridan, and Southside Elementary in Powell were nominated for the Blue Ribbon Schools honor by the Wyoming Department of Education.

Founded in 1982, The National Blue Ribbon Schools Program honors public and non-public elementary, middle and high schools where students perform at very high levels or where students are making significant gains in academic achievement.

The program recognizes schools in one of two performance categories. The first category is “Exemplary High Performing,” in which schools are recognized among their state’s highest performing schools, as measured by state assessments or nationally-normed tests. The second category is “Exemplary Improving,” in which schools that have at least 40 percent of their students from disadvantaged backgrounds demonstrate the most progress in improving student achievement levels as measured by state assessments or nationally-normed tests.

According to a news release from the Wyoming Department of Education, Glenn Livingston, Highland Park, and Southside have all been nominated by the WDE in the category of Exemplary High Performing Schools. Only three schools per year in Wyoming receive this nomination. The schools will be contacted in the near future from the US Department of Education and asked to complete an application for the program.

The United States Department of Education will announce its nationwide list of Blue Ribbon Schools in Sept. of 2014.
