Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, provides financial assistance to local education agencies (LEAS) and schools with high numbers or high percentages of children from low-income families to help ensure that all children meet challenging state academic standards. Title I funds go to schools in the LEA with the highest percentages of children from low-income families. Those qualified selected schools must focus Title I services on children who are failing, or most at risk of failing, to meet state academic standards
Title I funds provide additional academic support and learning opportunities to help low-achieving children master challenging curriculum and meet state standards in core academic subjects. For example, funds support extra instruction in reading and mathematics, as well as special after school, before school, and other programs that extend and reinforce the regular school curriculum.
Title I Fall Activities for Parents
Title I students who are receiving school support services will begin receiving those services at the beginning of the school year once notifications to parents have been made. Parents are invited to attend Title I Parent Information Meetings to learn more about the program.
