What is Title I?
Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act is the largest federally funded education program that provides extra support to students who are academically at-risk in public and private schools.  Through Title I, the government allocates funds to school districts around the country based on the number of low-income families in each district. Title I funds are designed to help close the achievement gap between disadvantaged students and their peers. The purpose of Title I is to help ensure that all children have the opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach proficiency on challenging state academic standards and assessments. There are two models for Title I programs:

  • Schoolwide Programs
    School-wide programs allow for all students and families in high poverty school zones (over 40% poverty) to be eligible for Title I services. Title I schoolwide programs are based on a comprehensive plan of academic support that details how all instruction, assessment resources, and highly qualified teachers support the academic achievement of all students.

  • Targeted Assisted Programs
    All Title I resources and support are focused on an identified group of students and families. In Targeted Assisted Programs, all instruction, resources, and a highly qualified staff support the improved academic achievement of the identified students and families.

What are the Benefits of Title I?

A Title I program will provide your child with educational support beyond the regular classroom. Some benefits may include but are not limited to the following:

  • Increased parental involvement
  • Increase in technology
  • Smaller classes or specialized instructional support
  • Additional teachers and instructional assistants
