• Title 1 Information

    Title I, Part A is the largest federal education funding program for schools meant to improve educational opportunities for educationally deprived children. Title I programs are designed to help children meet the state content and performance standards in reading, language arts, and mathematics. A school that receives Title I dollars and has 40% or more of the students receiving free or reduced price lunches operates a “School-wide Program.” In schools with less than 40% poverty (free and reduced price lunches), programs are designed to help specific children and are “Targeted Assisted Programs.”  Title I services are also provided to eligible students who attend non-public schools.
