About Title I Schools

Title I is intended to help ensure that all children in the program have the opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach proficiency on challenging state academic standards and assessments. Title I targets resources to schools where the needs are greatest.

High-poverty elementary schools (those with 69 percent or more students from low-income families) are eligible to adopt Title I programs to raise the achievement of low-achieving students by improving instruction.

There are 2 types of Title I programs:

Targeted Assistance Program - When a school becomes a Title I school, the school must operate a Targeted Assistance program for two years. During these two years, the additional funds are used to focus on a targeted group of students the school has identified. After implementing the Targeted Assistance program for two years, the school may choose to operate a Schoolwide Program by developing a Schoolwide plan. Title I Targeted Assistance Schools pamphlet

Schoolwide Program - All students can receive additional services. No student identification is made that renders them eligible or ineligible for services, thus the Title I funds serve all children. Students identified as most at risk are given additional assistance.

Side by Side comparison of Title I Schoolwide program vs Targeted Assistance Programs

The use of effective instructional strategies such as Success Maker, Do The Math, I Station, Family Liaison Programs, extended-day, and extended-year programs, addresses the needs of students/parents in schools.
