Yesterday, State Representative Steven Arndt (R-Port Clinton) presented a resolution to R.C. Waters Elementary School, honoring them on being named a 2015 National Title I Distinguished School by the National Title I Association.

R.C. Waters Elementary School was one of 57 schools to be named a National Title I Distinguished School. The chosen schools were selected by overall student performance or by significantly closing the achievement gaps within student groups. R.C. Waters was the only Ohio school selected and it was the school’s first time receiving this recognition.

“It was a pleasure to be able to recognize a truly great school from the 89th House District in R.C. Waters Elementary,” Arndt said. “Our future lies within our youth, and I commend the staff and administration at R.C. Waters for their dedication to improving the lives of our future generations.”

The National Title I Distinguished Schools Program was started to showcase schools that helped economically disadvantaged students excel in education with Title I federal funds.

R.C. Waters Assistant Principal Angie Lipstraw, reading instructor June Beard, and Assistant Secretary Angie Rahm were present to accept the resolution at Ohio House session.
