    What is Title I?

    Title I is the largest federal education program supported through the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965.  Schools are identified for Title I support based on the socio economic status of the students that attend. Regulations require that schools involve a team of stakeholders, including staff, parents, and community members in determining how funds are best used to meet the needs of a school. Title I schools are held accountable for and support student achievement, school improvement, staff development, and family engagement.
