    As a Title 1 School, we qualify for the Maryland Meals for Achievement Program, which provides free breakfast for all students and staff.   Our Title 1 funding also provides us with after school math intervention programs, additional classroom resources, and professional development for staff members.  Using Title 1 funds has allowed us to purchase additional technology for our students, such as Chromebooks in grades two through five.
                
    Title 1 benefits are provided to schools based on free and reduced lunch counts.  Applications for free or reduced price meals are available in the school office.   PLEASE RETURN YOUR APPLICATION TO BAY VIEW ELEMENTARY SCHOOL AS SOON AS POSSIBLE!  All information is strictly confidential.

    Title I and ”No Child Left Behind”

    One of the stipulations of the “No Child Left Behind Act of 2001” is that parents have the rights to know the qualifications of the people who teach their children. The Cecil County Public System is pleased with the level of skill and competence of our teacher workforce. We will provide this information as requested. If you would like to know the specific qualifications of your child’s teacher and/or paraprofessional, please send the office a written request.

    We are very pleased to share with you that 100% of the employees at Bay View Elementary are considered “Highly Qualified” as prescribed by the No Child Left Behind Act.

    Highly Qualified Teachers
    The Federal Government provides funding to states each year for Title 1. The goal of Title 1 is a high quality education for every child. Title 1 resources are directed to schools with high poverty levels as determined by the percentage of students receiving free and reduced meals. Bay View Elementary falls under these guidlines and is currently receiving this additional funding. One of the benefits of being a Title 1 school is staffing. 100% of our teachers and paraprofessionals are highly qualified. This means they are all working within their certification area. As a parent, you have the right to request information about your child's teacher's qualifications. To lean more aobut your Right to Know, visit our BVES web page under the Parent Information icon.

    The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, which was signed by President Bush on January 8, 2002 says that parents have the right to know the qualifications of the people who teach their children. The Cecil County Public School System is pleased with the level of skill and competence of our teacher workforce. We will provide this information as requested. If you would like to know the specific qualifications of your child’s teacher and/or paraprofessional, please send the office of your child’s school a written request.
