Earl Ele­men­tary earns high honors

The Boyertown Area Times - - FRONT PAGE -

The Boy­er­town Area School District is pleased to an­nounce that Earl Ele­men­tary School has been as rec­og­nized by the Di­vi­sion of Fed­eral Pro­grams as a Ti­tle I Dis­tin­guished School for the 2015-16 school year.

Ti­tle I is a 100% fed­er­ally funded sup­ple­men­tal ed­u­ca­tional pro­gram that pro­vides fi­nan­cial as­sis­tance to lo­cal ed­u­ca­tional agen­cies to im­prove learn­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties. Ti­tle I pro­grams are de­signed to help chil­dren meet the state con­tent and per­for­mance stan­dards in read­ing, lan­guage arts, and math­e­mat­ics.

Earl Ele­men­tary School is one of only 168 Ti­tle I schools in Penn­syl­va­nia to be named a Ti­tle I Dis­tin­guished School for the 20152016 school year. The school was specif­i­cally rec­og­nized for High Achieve­ment, as our stu­dents per­formed in the top 5% of all Ti­tle I schools on the PSSA Math and Read­ing as­sess­ments.

“This recog­ni­tion is a tes­ta­ment to ded­i­ca­tion and com­mit­ment of Earl Ele­men­tary School’s fac­ulty, staff, and stu­dents,” said Dr. Sara Obarow, Earl Ele­men­tary School Prin­ci­pal. “This award is for ev­ery­one and I could not be more proud of their ef­forts.”

Earl Ele­men­tary School will be hon­ored by the Penn­syl­va­nia Depart­ment of Ed­u­ca­tion, Di­vi­sion of Fed­eral Pro­grams at the 2017 Ti­tle I Im­prov­ing Schools’ Per­for­mance Con­fer­ence dur­ing the Dis­tin­guished Schools’ Award Cer­e­mony on Mon­day, Jan­uary 30, at the Sheraton Sta­tion Square in Pitts­burgh.
