Transylvania County Schools' (TCS) four elementary schools, Brevard Elementary, Rosman Elementary, Pisgah Forest Elementary and T.C. Henderson Elementary, all qualify for the Title I funding. The funds are used to supplement reading and mathematics instruction for at risk students.
Title I, the cornerstone of the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act, is the largest federal education program. About half the schools and all school districts in North Carolina receive Title I funding. Many of the major requirements in No Child Left Behind are outlined in Title I : Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP); teacher and paraprofessional requirements; accountability; sanctions for schools designated for improvement,; standards and assessments; annual state report cards; professional development; and parent involvement. On the Transylvania County Schools' webpage and the www.ncpublicschools.org site are basic Title I facts, lists of Title I schools – including those in Improvement, and a Title I directors’ list. For additional Title I information, view the NC Department of Public Instruction Federal Programs' site at :http://www.ncpublicschools.org/federalprograms/titleI/
