• What is Title I?

    Title I provides support through resources and research-based training, enabling schools to develop high quality, enriched programs that meet the individual needs of all children, families, and staff. Title I is a federally funded program designed to improve achievement at schools with a high percentage of students eligible for free and reduced priced lunches.  To qualify for school-wide program status, a school must meet the criteria of a free and reduced lunch percentage of 65% or higher.
