NORTH CAROLINA’S NATIONAL TITLE I DISTINGUISHED SCHOOL
Bethel Elementary qualifies as a School Wide Program for having a student population of 40% or more receiving either free or reduced lunch. Funding by the Title 1 program, provided by the federal government, is intended to ensure that all Bethel’s children have the opportunity to obtain a high quality education and reach grade level proficiency.
Some services Title 1 funding provides here at Bethel are additional teaching staff, not provide by the state and purchases of technology for the classrooms such as smartboards, projectors, computers, and document cameras. Title 1 monies help to fund Case 21 assessment and 4th/ 5th grade Mclass reading assessment, both providing invaluable data on each student’s academic growth. Title 1 monies purchase books for students, grade levels, and various programs as well as providing teaching material and staff development.
Additional Title 1 funds are set aside each year for Parent Involvement, which is very important in your child’s success here at Bethel. Each grade is planning several parent involvement activities to which you will be invited. We hope you will participate in these events this year.
Here at Bethel, administration, the Title 1 team, and teachers want to work with you and your children to make this a successful academic year. If you have any questions or we can be of help to you, please don’t hesitate to contact anyone on the Bethel staff. We hope you and your family have successful school year.
