Welcome To Our Title I Information Page!
What is Title I (Title One)?
Title I, Part A of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) provides financial assistance to states and school districts to meet the needs of educationally at-risk students. The goal of Title I is to provide extra instructional services and activities which support students identified as failing or most at risk of failing the state's challenging performance standards in mathematics, reading, and writing.
Students do NOT have to be from low-income families to receive Title I services
In a Title I targeted assistance school, Title I funds may only be used to provide services to eligible students identified as having the greatest need for special assistance. Eligible students are students who are failing, or most at risk of failing, to meet the Illinois Learning Standards on the basis of multiple, educationally related, objective criteria.
Schools with schoolwide programs use Title I funds to implement comprehensive strategies for improving the educational program of the whole school in schools with 40% or more poverty to increase the achievement of all students, particularly at-risk students. In a Title I schoolwide school, Title I funds may be used to provide services to any student.
