Lakeside ES Named Title 1 Distinguished School

The Virginia Department of Education has recognized Lakeside Elementary School as a National Title 1 Distinguished School. Lakeside Elementary School was selected by a peer review panel to represent Virginia in the category of "Closing the Achievement Gap Among Student Groups" for two or more consecutive years.

National Title 1 Distinguished Schools will be recognized during the National Title 1 Conference in Tampa, Fla., scheduled for Jan. 31- Feb. 3, 2011.

"I am so happy for the students, parents, and businesses of the Lakeside community," says Principal Herb Monroe. "The entire Lakeside staff has worked long hours and often more than five days week to make a difference in the lives of all students. This recognition shows that hard work and a true belief that all students can learn really pays off. Being named the Title I Distinguished School for 'Closing the Achievement Gap' really brings the pride back to the Lakeside community."

The VDOE recognizes schools as Title 1 Distinguished schools for maintaining full state accreditation under the commonwealth’s Standards of Learning program for two consecutive years, meeting federal benchmarks in reading and mathematics and having average test scores in both subjects at the 60th percentile or higher.

"The elementary team couldn't be more proud of this distinguished accomplishment from the entire Lakeside Elementary team," says Pamela Bell, executive director of elementary education. "They never let up, nor did they give up on their students and community. They have demonstrated incredible endurance, competence, belief, and perseverance, and Herb Monroe, principal, certainly deserves recognition for his outstanding leadership. He refuses to settle for less, and has made our entire school district proud."
