What is Title I?

Title I is a part of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) which provides financial assistance to local educational agencies and schools with high numbers or high percentages of children from low-income families to help ensure that all children meet challenging state academic standards. More information regarding Title I can be found in the link below.

Schoolwide Programs

Schools with more than forty percent of students receiving free and reduced-price lunches are eligible to become schoolwide programs. School-wide schools use Title I funds to enhance the educational program for all students attending the school.  The administration and staff of a school-wide program develop a plan based on identified needs within the school.  The Title I school plan includes research-based practices for improving student achievement for all students.
