Title 1

What is Title I?


Title I, Part A of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) provides financial assistance to states and school districts to meet the needs of educationally at-risk students.


The goal of Title I is to provide extra instructional services and activities which support students identified as failing or most at risk of failing the state’s challenging performance standards in math, reading, and writing.


What will Title I do for my child?


The Title I program will provide your student with extra educational assistance beyond the regular classroom.


How does our school receive Title I money?


First, the federal government provides funding to each state. Then, each State Educational Agency sends money to its school districts. How much money each school receives is determined by the number of low-income students attending the school.

Finally, Title I schools:


  • Identify the students at their school who need the most educational asistance based on the criteria that school has chosen.
  • Set goals for improving the skills of educationally disadvantaged students at their school.
  • Measure student progress to determine the success of the Title I program for each student.
  • Develop programs for each individual student in order to support/supplement regular classroom instruction.


What can parents do?


Parents, you can influence the success of your student in school more than any teacher or federal program.   Research shows that how well students do in school depends a great deal upon how much their parents get involved in their education. You can become more involved by:


  • Joining the PTO/PAC
  • Voluteering at the school.
  • Attending parent-teacher conferences.
  • Communicating with your student's teacher regularly.
  • Keeping your students teacher informed about events in his or her life that may affect his/her performance at school.
