Welcome to Title I
Title I, Part A, the cornerstone of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) of 2015, is the nation's largest federal assistance program for schools. According to the U.S. Department of Education, the purpose of Title I funding, is to ensure that all children have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach, at minimum, proficiency on challenging state academic achievement standards and assessments.
The Title I office uses federal funds to assist schools with the development and implementation of school plans that strategically focus on closing the achievement gap and increasing student achievement. These plans may include hiring additional staff, providing effective professional development opportunities, offering tutorial services, purchasing materials and supplies or promoting parental and community involvement programs. Supplemental resources, such as these, target the unique educational needs of each school creating positive learning opportunities.
