Growing the essentials for learning
The Essentials for Learning Initiative, begun in 2017, improves the way students are learning in the classroom. From pre-k through graduation, we are teaching rigorous academic standards in ways that incorporate the skills students need to be successful in the classroom and in the workplace.
Essentials for Learning focuses on preparing students to:
Work in a Team Structure
Make Decisions and Solve Problems
Plan, Organize, and Prioritize Work
Obtain and Process Information
Title I is a federal program intended to help ensure that all children have the opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach proficiency on challenging state academic standards and assessments. Title I targets resources to schools where the needs are greatest. (High-poverty schools are identified by having 40% or more students from low-income families.) Title I schools are eligible to adopt schoolwide programs to raise the achievement of low-achieving students by improving instruction throughout the entire school, thus using Title I funds to serve all children. All of our elementary schools are school-wide Title I schools.

Parents Right to Know: The Federal Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) contains several provisions that promote a parent/school partnership through communication. One such provision gives parents the right to ask for and receive information about the professional qualifications of their child’s classroom teachers. A parent may request the following information: Any college or university degree, major or certification held by the teacher
- Whether the teacher is certified by the State of Maryland to teach a particular grade level or subject area
- Whether the teacher holds a conditional teaching certificate
- The qualifications of the paraprofessionals serving the student
If you would like to request the professional qualifications of your child’s classroom teachers or paraprofessionals, please submit a written request to the principal. The principal will provide the information to you within 30 business days of the date of your request.
