PORTA School District Receives SchoolSearch 2012 Bright Star Award!
High Academic Performance while spending less per pupil
October 01, 2012
The PORTA School District was recently awarded the SchoolSearch 2012 Bright Star Award for educational excellence! Our school district is one of only 85 Illinois School Districts (out of 868 school districts) honored with the SchoolSearch 2012 Bright Star Award.
SchoolSearch awards school districts that shine in spite of low funding.
All school districts in Illinois are considered for the award and the award is based on objective factors - on which all districts are judged fairly. The award criteria are based on those districts whose students' academic performance ranks in the upper one third of Illinois school districts, but whose expenditure per pupil ranks in the lower one-fourth of Illinois school districts.
