Title I
What is Title I?

Title I is a federal program which provides assistance to improve the education of children in high-poverty schools, enabling those children to meet state academic content and performance standards. A Title I school is a school with low-income students making up more than 50% of the student boy.  These schools may use the Title I funds to create a school wide program to improve achievement, thereby serving all children in the school.  

How Title I Works:

The Title I school, which includes: teachers (including all staff), administrators, parents, family of students, and students, works together to identify those students who are most in need of educational assistance.
The school does the following for these students, using funds received from the federal government:

develops programs to add to regular classroom instruction,
provides family engagement plans that encourage and invite families to our school to learn,
creates and implements a 2-year school improvement plan,
funds literacy specialists and assistants that teach small literacy groups to our most in-need,
provides professional development for our staff to be teaching using evidence-based teaching strategies,
provides trade books, classroom libraries, class sets of texts
