MT. VERNON -- — Waltonville High School and Summersville Grade School districts have received 2013 Bright Star Awards from the SchoolSearch educational research and consulting firm.
The annual awards recognize districts with high student academic performance, but lower operating expenditures per pupil. ISAT and ACT test scores are factors in this award.
SchoolSearch honors 91 districts a year with these awards, out of a total of 866 districts. The firm recommends that award recipients should be considered for additional state funding.
