Croswell and Deckerville Schools ranked among best in state in Bridge Magazine

(AREA) -- Two Sanilac County schools were recognized as Academic State Champions by Bridge Magazine, finishing in the top ten of the 4th grade test score ranking. Croswell-Lexington Schools was ranked ninth in the state and Deckerville Community Schools was ranked tenth. By finishing in the top 10, these schools were in the top 2 percent of schools in the state. Cros-Lex also received recognition in the Rural Schools category as third in the state. Cros-Lex Superintendent Dr. Kevin Miller says the district knows the great academic things the teachers, aides, and administrative staffs are doing for Cros-Lex students, but it sure is nice when it's recognized statewide by independent organizations. The winners, ranging from small rural districts to urban charter schools, are the state's best at raising student achievement above expected scores for the student body's income level, according to a formula developed by Bridge Magazine and the Lansing research firm of Public Sector Consultants. Out of 560 districts statewide, Kingston Community Schools in Tuscola County was ranked 8th overall and Croswell-Lexington in Sanilac County came in 20th.
