What is Title I?

Title I is a federal program that offers supplemental funds to qualifying schools.  The eligibility of a school to receive Title I services is determined by the number of students receiving free or reduced cost meals.

The Goal

The goal of Title I is to ensure that all children have an equal opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach proficiency on state academic achievement standards. Title I instruction is supplemental and does not take the place of regular classroom instruction.
