Title I

What Is Title 1?

Title 1—Part A (Improving Basic Programs Operated by Local Education Agencies).

The purpose of this federal program 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 state academic assessments. Title 1 provides grants to school districts which then allocate funds to individual Title 1 schools based on the number of students eligible for free and/or reduced school meals. These funds support state and local efforts to provide technical assistance (based on scientifically-based research) to school staff and improve schools identified as needing improvement based on progress.

 

Title 1 Program Funding Helps Schools Provide:

· Highly-qualified teachers

· A variety of teaching methods

· Additional professional development for schools staff

· Parent Involvement activities

 

The Goal of Title 1

Every student reaches the learning standard of “PROFICIENT.”

 

Listed below is the information you will receive during the school year regarding your school-wide Title 1 Program:
