|De Soto High School, Lexington Trails Middle School, and Horizon Elementary are recipients of the seventh annual Governor's Achievement Award. This distinction honors top performing schools and places DHS, LTMS, and Horizon among the top five percent in Kansas. This is the second year in a row for LTMS to win the award. "We are proud of our schools and their continued focus on student achievement," said Dr. Doug Sumner, Superintendent of Schools. "We know this award could not have been possible without hard-working students, highly qualified teachers, paraprofessionals, support staff, administrators, and dedicated parents." In order for a school in Kansas to receive the prestigious award, it must meet the following criteria. - The school must be among the top five percent in both Reading and Mathematics on the 2012 state assessments at its respective level (elementary, middle/junior, or high school). - The school must have achieved the Standard of Excellence in both Reading and Mathematics for 2012. - The school must have achieved Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) in both Reading and Mathematics and one additional measure. (For elementary schools and middle/junior high schools - attendance; for high schools - graduation rate.)|
