Lindale intermediate named ‘Distinguished School’

Released by the Lindale ISD:

LINDALE, TX - The Division of No Child Left Behind Program Coordination at the Texas Education Agency has designated Lindale's E.J. Moss Intermediate School as a Title I, Distinguished Performance School. The honor recognizes schools that have consistently demonstrated strong academic performance over a three-year period.

To be named a Distinguished Performance School, E.J. Moss achieved a minimum rating of Recognized from the TEA for the past two years and achieved a rating of Exemplary during the spring of 2009. The campus also met the criteria for Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) in 2008 and 2009.

A Distinguished Performance School must also have a residing population of 40% or more low-income students in 2009-2010. Title 1 schools receive federal funding to meet the needs of at-risk and low income students.

"This accomplishment is fully the result of our dedicated teachers and staff on our campus," E.J. Moss assistant principal Lori Anderson said. "They spend time after school planning and assessing the progress of each student. Students who have identified weaknesses or ‘gaps' in their education are enrolled in our Enrichment classes that take place during the school day. "

"We are blessed to have students in our school who want to do their best and parents and community members who are very supportive of our school as a whole. I truly hope that our staff and students are proud of this honor of 'Distinguished School'. They have all worked very hard and truly deserve it."
