Cros-Lex nationally recognized for its Title I efforts
Meyer Elementary School in the Croswell-Lexington School District has been named a Distinguished School by the National Title I Association. Meyer’s recognition is for exceptional student performance for two or more years. The National Title I Association has been selecting examples of superior Title I school programs for national recognition since 1996. Only two schools from Michigan were selected for this special recognition.
“We have a high level of commitment to the success of all our students,” said Donna Barrier, Meyer Principal. “The work we do every day to provide solid instruction and individual student support helps to make student growth and achievement a reality. We are truly honored to be nationally recognized, and proud to be part of a district that is leading the way toward helping every student reach their fullest academic potential.”
Based on a combination of academic achievement of their students and the creative and innovative programs that contribute to their success, the schools selected in the individual states as National Title I Distinguished Schools join about one hundred other distinguished schools nationwide in making a difference for our nation’s Title I children.
“This is a tribute to the great work our entire staff does working with our Title I teachers to educate and remediate low income children in our district,” Superintendent Kevin Miller said.
Distinguished schools demonstrate a wide array of strengths, including team approaches to teaching and learning, focused professional development opportunities for staff, individualized programs for student success and strong partnerships between the school, parents and the community. What makes National Title I Distinguished Schools’ stories especially powerful are the documented student achievement gains that have resulted from their innovations.
“The work of the staff, with support from the whole community in our district, continue to make numerous opportunities possible for all students,” said Julie Western, Curriculum Director.
“This does not just happen; it takes hard work with a vision! We are very proud of the entire Meyer Staff and this special award!”
