Title I Family Engagement Policy Review

ECPS has 10 schools that qualify for Title I, Part A (Title I) of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESEA). It provides financial assistance to local educational agencies (LEAs) and schools with high numbers or high percentages of children from low-income families to help ensure that all children meet challenging state academic standards. We are conducting our annual review of our Title 1 Family Engagement Board Policy and would like your feedback. The policy will be available for review at the ECPS Central Office located at 2311 North Main Street in Tarboro - Tuesday, July 26th- Thursday, August 4th 7:00 am to 6:00 pm.

NC Digital Children's Reading Initiative

In order to provide continuing support for North Carolina’s youngest readers, The North Carolina Department of Public Instruction Office of Early Learning has developed and released “Literacy at Home.” This digital resource provides literacy activities at each grade level, pre-kindergarten through fifth grade. Families and communities may access this resource for activities that specifically target the literacy skills of phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, reading comprehension, and oral language. When children grow in each of these foundational areas they are well on their way to becoming proficient readers. Click the headline above to access the resources!
