What is Title One?
How Is Title I School Funding Determined?
- Title 1 is a federal fund.
- The intention of Title 1 is to help ensure that all children have the opportunity to obtain a high quality education and reach grade-level proficiency.
- Title 1 funds helps students who are behind academically or at risk of falling behind.
- Funds are only used to help students reach proficiency in the following academic subjects: English Language Arts and Mathematics.
- Title 1 never replaces what other students receive (it is supplemental to the regular program).
- Title 1 uses research based practices.
Title I Must…
- Title 1 is a federal entitlement program (non-competitive formula).
- It is allocated on the basis of student enrollment for ages 5-17, the 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.
