Title I is a federally funded program that provides services to school districts based on student economic needs. Title I is the largest Federal Assistance Program for our nation's schools. The goal is to provide a high-quality education for every child, so the program provides extra help to students who need it most. These students are the furthest from meeting the standards the state has set for all children.  The focus of the program remains what it has always been: To improve the academic achievement of children who need extra help in basic educational skills.

Title I is a supplemental program.  It is not designed to take the place of the educational responsibilities of the Rockland School System.  Rather, it provides an opportunity for additional instruction.
