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, Wilson Vance, and Northview elementary schools.
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.
