C. Bucks schools earn excellence awards

DOYLESTOWN Lt. Gov. Jim Cawley, a former Bucks County commissioner, visited Central Bucks High School East on Thursday morning to present it and 21 other schools in the Central Bucks district with the Governor's Award for Excellence in Academics.

The award, in its first year, is given to schools across the state that achieve a score of 90 percent or higher on the School Performance Profile.

Central Bucks East and the district's Lenape Middle School both earned scores of 98.9, according to figures provided by Cawley's office, the highest of any public schools in Bucks County.

In total, according to the figures, 428 schools across the state earned a 90 or above.

Cawley also visited Perkiomen Valley High School Thursday, which earned above a 90 on its profile.
