Butler and Burbank Schools Honored at Massachusetts State House

The Butler and Burbank Schools were honored at the State House in a ceremony held on February 1 that recognized 51 Massachusetts schools for high achievement, making strong progress, narrowing achievement gaps or a combination of all three.

The Butler school was honored for receiving the 2016 National Blue Ribbon Award given by the U.S. Department of Education for achieving at a “very high level”, and the Burbank school was honored as a Massachusetts Commendation School for their high academic progress. The Butler school was given the National Blue Ribbon award in a ceremony in Washington, D.C. in November.

Principals Michael McAllister (formerly Butler, now Chenery), Danielle Betancourt (Butler), Tricia Clifford (Burbank), and Superintendent John Phelan attended the ceremony. Also in attendance were Rep. David Rogers and Sen. William Brownsberger. There were opening remarks by the Commissioner of Elementary and Secondary Education Mitchell D. Chester, the Secretary of Education Jim Peyser, and Lt. Governor Karyn Polito presented the awards. For more information, and a complete list of the 51 Massachusetts schools honored, please go to
