FCS Title I
Title I, Part A (Title I) of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, as amended, provides financial assistance to districts and schools with high numbers or high percentages of children from low-income families to ensure that all children meet challenging state academic standards. The purpose of Title I is to ensure that all children have a fair, equal and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and at a minimum, reach proficiency on challenging state academic achievement standards and assessments.
Which schools does Title I serve?
Eligible schools receive Title I funds from the state provided by the federal government based primarily on U. S. Census data of low-income students; however, services are provided to students identified as having the greatest need for assistance. The program serves children in Bigelow Hill, Chamberlin Hill, Jacobs, Jefferson, Lincoln, and Northview elementary schools and Glenwood Middle School.
What is a Title I Schoolwide Program?
A Title I schoolwide program is a method of delivering Title I services in eligible schools. It allows each school the opportunity to use Title I funds to support comprehensive reforms intended to improve the entire educational program in each school as opposed to only certain students.
