Title I is a federal program that provides funds to school districts and schools with high numbers or high percentages of children who are disadvantaged to support a variety of services. Its overall purpose is to ensure that all children have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach, at a minimum, proficiency on challenging state academic achievement standards and assessments. Title I supplements, but does not replace classroom curriculum.

Program Elements

Critical program elements are:

  • needs assessment and program plan design,
  • parent involvement,
  • services to students enrolled in private schools,
  • high-quality teachers and paraprofessionals,
  • coordination of services for homeless students in non-Title I schools,
  • support for Title I Focus and Priority schools and
  • comparability.

Economic Support

The Resources and Strategies document is designed to help school district staff assist families and unaccompanied children and youth (not in the physical presence of a parent or guardian) access community resources to meet basic needs.
