Title I Information / Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Schoolwide Title I Program?

Title I is the largest federal aid program for our nation’s schools. It provides financial assistance to statesand school districts to meet the needs of educationally at-risk students. The goal of Title I is to provideinstructional services and activities which support students in meeting the state’s challenging performancestandards. Funding received through Title I coordinates with and supplements the regular educationprogram.

How are Title I schools selected?

Schools are selected based on the percentage of children in the school who receive free or reduced lunches. Students attending Title I schools do NOT have to be from low-income families to receive Title I services.

What will Title I do for my child?

The Title I program will provide your child with extra educational assistance beyond the regular classroom setting, when needed. Title I schools will identify the students at their school who need the most educational assistance based on the criteria identified and outlined by the school’s reading and/or math intervention program.
