Title I is the United States Federal Government’s largest education program to support public schools. Through Title I, money is given to school districts based on the number of low-income families in each district. Each district uses its Title I money for extra educational services for children most in need of educational help. The focus of the Title I program is to help every child receive a high quality education and to achieve the high academic standards set by the State of Alabama.
Being a Title I school means receiving federal funding (Title I dollars) to supplement the school’s existing programs. These dollars are used for:
Identifying students experiencing academic difficulties and providing timely assistance to help these students meet the State’s challenging content standards.
Purchasing supplemental staff/programs/materials/supplies
Conducting parent and family engagement meetings/trainings/activities
