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 sign a "Helping Each Child Succeed Teamwork
Agreement" form. This form promotes the policies set forth by the
Asheboro City Board of Education and the North Carolina State Board of
Education. The boards believe that learning can take place best when
there is a shared effort, interest and motivation by students, parents
Each month, the Resources for Educators organization publishes Reading Connection Newsletters. These newsletters provide parents and teachers with reading tips to improve student literacy skills. The most recent editions of the Reading Connection Newletters can be found at the Asheboro City Schools Title I page.
