• What is Title I?

      A federally funded program that serves millions of children in elementary and secondary schools each year. Money is sent to school districts based on the number of low-income families (data derived from free and reduced lunch information). If a school within the district has at least forty percent of their students that are from low-income families, then the school is considered a school-wide Title I school and all students are eligible to benefit from the program.
