Family Engagement

North East Carolina Prep School welcomes the involvement of our students’ parents and guardians.  To assist in your child’s class, contact the classroom teacher for specific needs that may include:

  • Serving as a guest reader
  • Serving as a guest speaker on a topic in your area of expertise
  • Tutoring an individual student or helping a group of students
  • Chaperoning a field trip or other special event
  • Providing supplies or materials for the classroom
  • Connecting the school to resources that may support the school
  • Helping with fundraising and other activities that support the school

Consider getting involved with one of the school parent organizations including:  the Parent-Teacher Organization, Band Boosters, or Athletic Boosters.

Thank you for your interest in North East Carolina Preparatory School.


The Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) meets regularly to plan activities, provide information, and involve parents.  PTO Service Teams coordinate the activities: “service” reflects their purpose and NECP core values, and “team” describes the way they work together to meet goals.

Parents interested in joining PTO should email Leslie Taylor

NECP welcomes volunteers in the classrooms, for special projects, and at school events. To volunteer, parents should contact your child’s teacher to determine how your skills and available time will match with the needs of the classroom.  Community volunteers should contact the NECP office at 252-641-0464 or by email at

To insure school security and student safety, volunteers are required to register with the school and a background check may be required for volunteers working in some circumstances.

Thank you for your support of NECP!


Family Engagement Policy

NOTE: In support of strengthening student academic achievement, North East Carolina Prep School receives Federal Title I, Part A funds and must develop jointly with, agree on with, and distribute to, parents of participating children a written parental involvement policy that contains information required by Section 1118(a)(2) of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) (district wide parental involvement policy). The policy establishes the school’s expectations for parental involvement and describes how NECP will implement a number of specific parental involvement activities, and is incorporated into the school’s plan submitted to the State educational agency (SEA).

Parents Right to Know

Title I School

Elementary and Secondary Education Act requires all Charter schools to notify parents of all children in a Title I school they have the right to request and receive timely information on the professional qualifications of their children’s classroom teachers. This notice must be sent at the start of each school year. The notice does not itself contain the teacher information; it simply tells parents the types of information they may request.

At a minimum, if a parent requests it, school must report:

  • Whether the teacher has met state qualifying and licensing criteria for the grade levels and subject areas in which the teacher is teaching;
  • Whether the teacher is a teacher under emergency or other provisional status through which state qualification or licensing criteria have been waived;
  • The baccalaureate degree major of the teacher and any other graduate certification or degree held by the teacher, including the field of discipline of the certification or degree; and
  • Whether the child is provided services by paraprofessional and, if so, their qualifications.

In addition, if a child is assigned, or taught by, a teacher who is not “highly qualified” for four or more consecutive weeks, the parents must receive a timely notice.

These and other communications with parents must be in an understandable and uniform format and, to the extent practical, in a language the parents can understand. According to ED guidance, if there is no other way to provide information, it should be provided in oral translation.

Requests must be in writing to the Division Principal or the Executive Director.

This applies only to Title I schools.
