ROME, PA—Northeast Bradford Elementary School (NEB) has been designated as a Title 1 Distinguished School by the Pennsylvania Department of Education, Division of Federal Programs for the 2017-2018 school year.
Title 1 is a 100 percent federally funded supplemental education program that provides financial assistance to local educational agencies to improve learning opportunities among students. Title 1 programs are designed to help students meet state standards in core subjects.
“This recognition is a testimony of the hard work that occurs in our Elementary school every day,” said Superintendent William Clark. “I am extremely proud of our students and our staff for their efforts in leading to this accomplishment.”
Each year the Division of Federal Programs honors the top performing Title 1 schools in Pennsylvania. This year, the Division used the approved ESEA Flexibility Waiver designation of reward, which means NEB ranks among the state’s top 5 percent of Title 1 schools, based on math and reading PSSA proficiency and attaining all four Annual Measurable Objectives.
In total, 120 Title 1 schools in Pennsylvania received the designation.
