    What is Title I?
    * A Federal fund.
    * Authorized by the No Child Left Behind Act (but began with the passage of the Elementary and Secondary Act of 1965).
    * Intention is to help ensure that all children have the opportunity to obtain a high quality education and reach grade-level proficiency.
    * To help students who are behind academically or at risk of falling behind first.
    * Only used to help students reach proficiency in academic subjects: English Language Arts and Mathematics.
    * Never replaces what all other students receive (is supplemental to the regular program).
    * Uses research based practices.
     
     
    How Is Title I School Funding Determined?
     
    * It is a federal entitlement program (non-competitive formula).
    * Allocated on the basis of student enrollment for ages 5-17, census poverty levels, and other data.
    * The U.S. Department of Education distributes these funds to State Education Agencies that in turn, distribute the funds to Local Education Agencies or school districts.
    * Local school districts allocate the funds to qualifying schools based on the number of poor children in a school.
