The mood was bright at Occoquan Elementary School, as students and faculty celebrated their recognition as a National Title I Distinguished School.
The school is one of only two in Virginia with this designation, according to a release.
In order to be given this designation, schools must “demonstrate a wide array of strengths, including team approaches to teaching and learning, focused professional development opportunities for staff, individualized programs for student success and strong partnerships between the school, parents and the community,” according to the National Title I Association’s website.
At an assembly this week, Superintendent Steve Walts, School Board Vice Chairman Lillie Jessie, County Supervisor Ruth Anderson, and Congressman Gerry Connolly’s representative Briana Sewell celebrated Occoquan Elementary School’s success, according to a release.
