2 Va. elementary schools earn national distinction

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Two Virginia elementary schools are being recognized for their achievements.

The state Department of Education says Patrick Henry Elementary in Arlington County and High Point Elementary in Washington County have been named as Virginia’s two 2014-2015 National Title I Distinguished Schools.

Representatives from the schools will be recognized by the National Association of State Title I Directors during the organization’s annual conference in February in Salt Lake City.

Officials say the schools were selected from the 40 high-achieving Title I schools honored by the Virginia Board of Education in October.

Patrick Henry Elementary was selected for exceeding federal annual measurable objectives for two consecutive school years. High Point Elementary was chosen for its efforts to close achievement gaps among student subgroups over two consecutive years.
