Background: At the Board’s direction, the structure of the 2019-2020 monthly Region Showcase item has been enhanced to provide a thorough picture of each region as it is presented on a monthly basis. This will include goals as well as progress in attaining them. In addition, strategies that are being successfully implemented within the region and that may be replicated will be included.

This month, the Citywide Region is featured. The region, which serves 9,896 students has 1,201 staff members, comprises 22 schools, including K3-5, K4-8, traditional middle schools, high schools, and an alternative school. The schools include the following: Browning, Bruce, Clarke, Elm, Fairview, Lancaster, Riverwest, Townsend, Audubon Middle School, Douglas Middle School, Green Tree, King Middle Years, Lincoln Center of the Arts, Morse, Roosevelt, Wedgwood, Audubon High School, Bradley Tech, North Division, South Division, South Accelerated Academy, and Washington High School.

The Citywide Region offers the following programming to meet the various needs of learners in pursuit of academic excellence: developmental bilingual and traditional monolingual biliteracy experiences, gifted-and-talented, International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program, Project Lead the Way (PLTW), Engineering is Elementary, and GE STEM, to name a few.

The Citywide Region is successful due to its families, staff, and dedicated community partnerships, a vital component to the success of students. The following are some of the community partnerships in the Citywide region: Arts@Large, Junior Achievement, Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee, and Math Motivators.
