Title I Programs and Schools
What is Title I?
Title I, Part A of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, was reauthorized as the No Child Left Behind Act of 2002 and the Every Child Succeeds Act of 2015. It is the largest federal assistance program for schools. The federal government provides funding to the state. The state sends the money to school districts based on the number of families below a set income level. Local districts use the funding to provide instructional services and activities which support students in meeting the state's performance standards.
Each of our Title I schools receives federal funds to provide a schoolwide program. A schoolwide program serves all children in the school by providing staff and/or other resources to assist in classrooms in the areas of reading and math.
