• Title I - General Information

    Title I is the largest federal assistance program for our nation's schools.The goal of Title I is to provide a high-quality education for every child. This program provides extra help to students who need it most. These are children who are furthest from meeting the standards the state has set for all children. The federal government provides funding to states. States send the money to school districts based on the numbers of low-income families. Title I serves children through schoolwide programs and targeted assistance programs. Programs generally offer smaller classes, additional teachers and assistants, additional training for school staff, extra time for instruction, a variety of teaching methods and materials, counseling and mentoring, and/or career and college awareness.

    Critical Program Elements:

    • comparability,
    • parent & family involvement,
    • evaluation of services provided to students enrolled in private schools,
    • high-quality teachers and paraprofessionals,
    • coordination of services for homeless students and students in the foster care system in all schools (Title I and non-Title I),
    • needs assessment and program plan design,
    • sanctions and support for schools identified for improvement.

    Each participating school or location has designed its own plan, including subject areas to be served, instructional models, and staffing based upon the unique needs of its students.  Each school coordinates its Title I plan with the school's comprehensive plan and develops these plans with a team of administrators, staff, community leaders, and parents.  Copies of each plan are available upon request from the Title I Office or the individual school/location.
