What is a Title I School?
All five elementary schools in the Asheboro City Schools 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.
School-Parent Compact Form
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 and staff.
Reading Connection Newsletters
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.
