District Title I Summary
All five elementary schools in the Asheboro City Schools district are classified as Title I schools. Title I is a federally funded program that provides additional resources and funds to high-poverty schools in the U.S. The program has been around in some form since the 1960s but was reauthorized in 2001 under the No Child Left Behind Act.
The primary goals of Title I are to provide additional educational opportunities for eligible students, to provide additional funding to schools and districts serving a large population of low-income students, to help educators understand the needs of special student populations through professional development, and to improve academic achievement of eligible students and reduce performance gaps. Title I also holds states, districts and schools accountable for implementing measurable standards for student achievement.
Students, parents/guardians, and teachers at the district's Title I schools are asked to collaboratively design a Family Engagement Plan to guide our efforts for building meaningful relationships with families, informing them about student progress, and building capacity in our school community for supporting students’ academic growth. We are also tasked with developing a Family Engagement Compact that specifically outlines what our staff, parents, and students commit to doing each year to achieve success. It serves as an agreement between all stakeholders that we will work as a team to help each child succeed in school. Asheboro City Schools and Lindley Park Elementary School believe that the best learning takes place when there is a shared effort, interest and motivation by students, parents and staff.
