Shaler Area is proud to announce two of its primary schools were named Title I Distinguished Schools by the Pennsylvania Department of Education, Division of Federal Programs.
Jeffery Primary School and Reserve Primary School are two of only 123 Title I schools in Pennsylvania to be named a Title I Distinguished School for the 2016-2017 school year. Both Shaler Area primary schools received High Achievement status by meeting all four annual measurable objectives and performing in the top 5 percent for English language arts and math proficiency on the Pennsylvania System of School Assessment (PSSA) test. Schools in Shaler Area have been named Title I Distinguished Schools in three of the past four years.
“We are so proud of the academic advancements made in our schools, and to receive the Title I Distinguished Schools distinction again for two of our primary schools speaks to the hard work of our students and dedication of our staff,” said Superintendent Sean Aiken.
The Pennsylvania Department of Education, Division of Federal Programs, will honor Jeffery and Reserve Primary Schools at the 2018 Improving School Performance Conference January 28-31, in Pittsburgh.
