Welcome to the Curriculum Department!
This site has been created to provide useful information to parents, teachers and students. Please let us know if you have any questions or suggestions. Norton City Schools receives federal money to support a portion of our elementary reading intervention program. In accordance with the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) of 2001 or the No Child Left Behind Act, we are required to notify all parents of their right to request information related to the qualifications of their child's teacher(s). This information is available through the district office and can be requested at any time by interested parents. Please call 330-706-2730, to request information related to this provision of federal and state law. For further information go to Ohio Parent Information and Resource Center (Ohio PIRC) at http://www.ohiopirc.org/ or call 1-888-647-4729 (toll free).
