What is Title I?

Title I is a federally funded program whose purpose is to ensure that all children have a fair, equitable and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and to raise achievement for all students.

Title I, Part A provides financial assistance through state educational agencies to school divisions and public schools with high numbers or percentages of children from low-income families to help ensure that all children meet challenging state academic content and achievement standards. Schools are identified for Title I funds based on the percentage of students eligible for free or reduced-price meals. Currently, we operate using a school wide program, so all elementary students in an eligible Title I school may receive academic services.

Title I provides funding for the following:

  • Additional staff;

  • Family engagement opportunities;

  • Professional development of instructional staff;

  • Summer programs;

  • Home libraries;

  • Online computer programs; and

  • Instructional materials and supplies.

Title I programs aim to ensure that all students have access to the following opportunities:

  • Meaningful, authentic and rigorous learning experiences;

  • Collaboration, critical and creative thinking, and problem solving.

  • Family engagement to enhance student achievement.
