IRVINGTON, N.Y. Two schools in the Irvington Union Free School District have earned recognition as some of the highest-achieving in the state.
School officials announced recently that Irvington High School and Main Street School have been named as reward schools by the New York State Education Department.
Both the Irvington High School and Main Street School have received the designation based upon student achievement, the school district said.
Of the 250 reward schools statewide, 29 are located in Westchester County. Schools receive the reward designation when they are among the highest-achieving in the state, make major progress and have no significant gaps in student achievement.
Reward schools are able to compete for state grants and can apply for state regulation variances in the 2012-13 school year.
