Title I Program

Helping students who need it most

"Our mission is to promote student achievement and preparation for global competitiveness by fostering educational excellence and ensuring equal access.”

 – U.S. Department of Education

The purpose of Title I is to ensure that all children have fair, equal and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education.


Title I is a federal program under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act that provides supplementary funding to improve academic achievement for low-income students. This funding is funneled to states, districts, and eventually schools based upon the number of low income students. The focus is on closing the achievement gap between high and low performing children, especially the disadvantaged children and their more advantaged peers. Schools are provided Title I supplementary funding based upon the percentage of students in their attendance area who qualify for free or reduced lunch.
