Celebrating Rocky River's Title I Reward School Status
On Tuesday, December 2, 2014 the staff at Rocky River was treated to a duty free lunch provided by the AIG and Federal Programs departments. The AIG and Federal Programs staff arrived to cover the lunchroom duties of the teachers so they could enjoy a lunch from Gino’s of Wingate in the media center.
School staff was being thanked for their hard work preparing all students to be successful. The school has earned recognition as a Title I Reward School and was designated as a “High Performing School”, recently meaning the school is among the top 10 percent of Title I schools in the state that have the highest performance over a number of years for “all students” on statewide assessments. Students consistently learn and grow at high levels resulting in achievement higher than many other Title 1 schools and many non-Title 1 schools. This achievement is a result of the staff’s dedication and hard work making sure they develop a plan for each student as an individual to receive instruction and interventions they need. Staff and students have a great relationship which helps everyone reach their goals of consistently growing as learners. Teachers take targeted approaches to help their students remain on grade level.
The staff enjoyed the duty free lunch time and appreciate the AIG and Federal Programs staff for providing coverage for them to enjoy a duty free lunch. They also received a tote lunch bag as a token of appreciation for their dedication and hard work with all students at Rocky River.
