This Tuesday, May 15th, there will be a parent meeting at Twinbrook regarding the Title One school choice option.
Please plan to attend this very important meeting regarding an opportunity your child may have for next year. We have discussed this at previous PTA General Membership Meetings and could not provide further information to some questions that were asked. The Federal Title I School Choice Option is offered to students enrolled in a Title I school that does not meet specific standards, known as Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) on Maryland School Assessments (MSA) for two or more consecutive years. The MSA is an annual test in reading and mathematics. Twinbrook DID NOT achieve AYP on the 2011 MSAs. If Twinbrook does not achieve AYP for the second year in 2012, your child will have the option of transferring to designated schools in the Montgomery County Public School System.
Although MSA results will not be released until this summer, there is a meeting being held this Tuesday evening to explain this program to parents. PLEASE come to get more information. If Twinbrook becomes apart of this school choice option, we will not find out until mid to late summer and it may be hard to get more information that late.
