Perseverance - character trait of the month

March of Dimes and Relay for Life

As part of building a better community, our students have the opportunity to participate in both the March of Dimes and the Yadkin County Relay for Life. Both events occur in the Spring. To prep for the events, students and staff are asked to bring in dimes to donate to the two causes. Each class that fills their bottle with dimes will receive a special reward.

Title 1 Statement

Federal law requires school districts to notify parents of children attending a Title I school of their right to know the professional qualifications of the classroom teachers who instruct their child.

As a recipient of these funds, Yadkin County School District will provide you with this information in a timely manner if you request it. Specifically, you have the right to request the following information about each of your child’s classroom teachers:

  • Whether the teacher meets the state qualifications and licensing criteria for the grades and core academic subjects he or she teaches.
  • Whether the teacher is teaching under emergency status because of special circumstances.
  • The teacher’s college major, whether the teacher has any advanced degrees, and the field of discipline of the certification or degree.
  • Whether teacher assistants provide services to your child and, if so, their qualifications.

In addition, the law requires that all schools that receive Title I funds must provide notification to every parent in the school whose child is being taught for four or more weeks by a teacher who is not Highly Qualified. The Yadkin County School District is committed to providing quality instruction for all students and does so by employing the most qualified individuals to teach and support each student in the classroom. If you would like to receive any of the information listed above for your child’s teacher, please contact the school principal or secretary and they will provide the information requested.
