Title I

What is Title I?

Title I is a federal program that helps schools ensure all students have a fair chance to succeed. It provides extra funding to schools with many students from low-income families.

How does it work?

  • Schools that receive Title I funds are called Title I schools.

  • These schools can choose one of two programs:

    • Schoolwide Program (SWP): This program uses the extra funding to help all students.

    • Targeted Assistance (TAS): This program focuses on helping students who are most behind in reading and math.

What kind of help do schools provide?

Schools use Title I funds for things like:

  • Smaller class sizes

  • Extra reading and math help

  • Professional development for teachers

  • Support services like counselors

How can parents be involved?

Title I wants parents to be involved in their child's education. Parents can participate in activities like:

  • School site council meetings

  • Developing plans for how parents can be involved

  • Parent-teacher conferences

  • Workshops on helping their child learn

  • Volunteering in the classroom

Schools, parents, and teachers can help all students reach their full potential by working together!
