What is Title I?
Title I is federal money granted to local education agencies to assist economically disadvantaged students to achieve state standards as well as academic success. It is your right to have a say in how Title I money is spent to best assist your student in academic success. Keep an eye on this webpage for parent meeting times to have your voice heard.
"In SY 2015-16 more than 55,906 public schools across the country used Title I funds to provide additional academic support and learning opportunities to help low-achieving children master challenging curricula and meet state standards in core academic subjects. For example, funds support extra instruction in reading and mathematics, as well as special preschool, after-school, and summer programs to extend and reinforce the regular school curriculum.
That same year Title I served more than 26 million children. Of these students, approximately 58 percent were in kindergarten through fifth grade, 21 percent in grades 6-8, 19 percent in grades 9-12, 2 percent in preschool, and less than one percent ungraded."
