Title I Schools
What Does it Mean to Be a Title I School?
Title I is a federal program that provides funding to schools that serve high numbers of low-income households. A school is considered a high-poverty school if the number of students who qualify for free or reduced lunch meets a certain threshold.
Title I schools receive additional funding under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act to ensure that their students can meet state academic standards. Title I funds can be used to provide educational support to students who are failing or at risk of failing to meet state standards. In the U.S., more than 25 million students benefit from Title I funds.
What Do Title I Funds Pay For?
Title I funds can be used to pay for services, supports, and even personnel to help students meet state standards. Students may be eligible for tutoring or after-school help under Title I. Title I funds can be used to purchase supplies and lesson materials or fund additional paraprofessional positions to help students in the classroom. The goal of Title I is to accelerate students’ academic growth.
Title I funds ease some of the systemic barriers to education, including poverty, homelessness, and language barriers.
