DUNDEE - Two elementary schools in Monroe County were among 32 statewide to be named Blue Ribbon Schools by the Michigan Department of Education.
Dundee Elementary School and Temperance Road Elementary in the Bedford Public Schools system were awarded the honor. District officials in both Dundee and Bedford were planning congratulatory celebrations to mark the occasion.
The Michigan Blue Ribbon Exemplary School Program recognizes schools that demonstrate a strong commitment to educational excellence and significant academic improvement over five years.
Schools must complete a comprehensive report of key criteria for school effectiveness that serves as a basis for an extensive assessment of their building and programs.
