Title I

  • Title I is a federal program that provides additional funding to school districts with high numbers of children who are disadvantaged. The stated purpose of Title I 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 academic assessments.”

    Title I funds provide supplemental services to children in Title I schools in the form of Targeted Assistance or Schoolwide Programs. The Targeted model provides direct services to students with the greatest need for supplemental services. The Schoolwide program model provides services to all students with the focus on students with the greatest need. Both program models provide supplemental instruction to improve the academic performance of students.
