Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act of 2015, provides funding to school districts to help ensure that all children, particularly those who are most academically at-risk, meet challenging state academic standards. Schools participating in the Title I program receive funds based on the percentage of students qualifying for free or reduced-price school meals. Title I programs are designed to ensure high standards for all, increase quality instructional time, improve instruction through professional development, enhance family participation in the educational process, expand educational resources, and strengthen accountability.
Each Title I school has a Title I contact who will support families in promoting the academic achievement of students. Workshops and schoolwide events are offered to build the capacity of families to support their children academically. The local school's Parent Center offers resources and materials for families to checkout for use at home.
