Title I Program

What is Title I?

 Title I, Part A is a federal program designed to provide children significant opportunities to receive a fair, equitable, and high-quality education, and to close educational achievement gaps.
Title I, Part A funding is awarded through a grant and is allocated under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) of 1965, as amended by the Every Child Succeeds Act (ESSA) of 2015.
Funds are provided to traditional and charter public schools whose percentage of low income families is above the district average, to participating private schools, to sites serving neglected or delinquent youth, and to support students identified as homeless. 
Funds are used to build equity of opportunity and to provide programs and services that support learning so that all children are able to meet the state’s high academic standards.
