School Wide Title I at EPS and EIS

Both EPS and EIS now have a school wide Title I program. A school wide program serves all children in the school and ensures that all staff, resources, and classes are part of the educational program. It also allows for greater flexibility of programs and services. A school wide Title I program will provide high quality education for all students to close the achievement gap.

Thank you to those that took the time to fill out the Title I Surveys for EPS & EIS. Here is a link that has the additional information that many of you said you were interested in. It will also be emailed out to all families. INFORMATION LINK

PLEASE HELP -- STEAM Programming Survey

As we grow our STEAM programming at every grade level we're finding that families are seeking out more and more STEAM-based opportunities.

What a great problem to have - eager learners looking for rigorous and engaging extracurricular activities! We're looking to community partners to help us create the spaces and programming families want, for our kids to learn, explore, build and grow during out-of-school time too!

To do so, WE NEED YOUR HELP! Please take just a few moments to complete the survey below and share a little about the types of interests and times you're looking to plug your kids into STEAM programs! Your feedback helps us grow!
