Title I

  • What is Title I?

    Title I is the major component of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) and the largest Federal assistance program for our nation’s schools. School districts receive federal funding to provide supplemental instruction for students in academic need. The goal is to increase performance and academic achievement in the areas of ELA and/or mathematics.

    Schools are identified as Title I based on the economic level of families who attend. The number of students receiving free and reduced lunch qualifies a school to receive Title I funding.
