Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Elizabeth City District Curriculum
Elizabeth City-Pasquotank County Public Schools’ Curriculum & Instruction Team is comprised of the Elementary Instructional Coordinator, the Elementary English Language Arts Instructional Coach, the Elementary Math Instructional Coach, the Secondary ELA Instructional Coach, the Secondary Math Instructional Coach, and the Secondary Science Instructional Coach. The district has composed several “LiveBinders” that outline different curricular areas in an interactive fashion.
For example the elementary-level English language arts and math “binders” contain tabs with the standards, the unpacking of the standards, tasks for gifted students, pacing guides that outline which topics are taught at which points in the year, educational game ideas, etc. The secondary-level LiveBinders consist of items such as the standards, assessment specifications, pacing guides, wikis, and professional development resources.

Keeping Informed: Recent Elizabeth City Educational News
- Teachers Form Cohort for Teaching Gifted Students - Fourteen northeast North Carolina teachers--nine from Elizabeth City-Pasquotank Public Schools--established the first-ever regional AIG Cohort after they all received their AIG licensures. The AIG certification p program is focused on the instruction of academically or individually gifted or highly creative students. The instructional facilitator at Elizabeth Middle School gained such knowledge as strategies to help students who are perfectionists, how to assess student' strengths and cultivate areas outside of those strengths, and why AIG students often exhibit certain behaviors.
- Pasquotank High’s Yearbook Honored in National Contest - While Pasquotank High's yearbook placed second in the 2014 American Scholastic Press Association Yearbook Contest, the yearbook took the top spot in the 2015 contest. Over 2,000 schools from across the nation participate in the competition, which takes into account writing, photography, and page design. One of the most popular aspects of the 2015 yearbooks, which sold more than 200 copies, was the inclusion of the student-submitted selfies.
- Elizabeth-Pasquotank District Names Principal of the Year - Pasquotank High Principal Amy Fyffe was named the 2016 Principal of the Year for the district. When Ms. Fyffe took over as principal, her goal was to make the school student-centered, which has helped to lower dropout rates, improve student achievement, and increase graduation rates. This has also contributed to closing racial achievement gaps, as just over 90 percent of the school's African American students graduated in 2015.
Testimonials and Case Studies from Our Parents
SchoolTutoring Academy has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.
My daughter was very self-conscious about her difficulties with the math section of the SAT. SchoolTutoring Academy’s Academic Directors created an action plan that boosted my daughter’s score and confidence level.
SchoolTutoring Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades. Test Prep Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades.
SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points
My son’s math marks in high school have always been weak so I found it very beneficial that his ACT tutor worked on solidifying his fundamentals while prepping for the ACT.
SchoolTutoring Academy gave my daughter the confidence she needed to boost her SAT score Thank you!
SchoolTutoring has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.
My daughter was able to improve her test scores after a few months of tutoring with SchoolTutoring. However, while raising test scores is great, the real payoff is in the self-confidence that she gained.
I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank-you! My son is very impressed with his tutor and looks forward to each session. What’s particularly amazing about this is our son has never really looked forward to math or school for that matter!
We are so happy with the results of your tutoring program and academic support. Homework time was such a stressful evening for the entire evening before we brought your tutors into our home. Thank you for all your help!
Our daughter, a first grader, struggled with basic reading and handwriting. When she began with SchoolTutoring she was almost a year behind her class. Within a year of being enrolled, she is reading above her grade level and has the confidence to match.

Chalk Talk: Storytelling and Literacy Development
There are many benefits of incorporating digital storytelling—the act of telling a story or presenting information about a topic using a variety of digital multimedia, including images, voice narrations, and music—in the classroom. First of all, the very act of creating them involves students practicing reading and writing! As with other forms of educational technology, it engages and motivates students and makes textbook material more interesting, relatable, and personal to students, as they choose their own images, music, and audio to be used in their stories. Of particular importance is that it helps motivate reluctant readers to read more after they create their own digital stories. It also benefits students with diverse learning styles and is a multi-sensory approach; for example, the inclusion of the images in the stories is advantageous to visual learners.
