Title I, Part A is one of many federal programs. Title I, Part A provides formula grants to districts. Districts then allocate funds to Title I schools based on their number of low-income children. The district must use Title I funds only in schools that have been selected for services through allowable procedures. Funds are used to improve student achievement in high poverty schools.
Title I works to give all children a chance to learn at higher academic standards. Its purpose is to prevent failure by ensuring that more children experience success in school in order to be college and career ready.
For more information about Title I, please see the attached brochure.
