What is Title I?
Title I was established to provide all children with the opportunity to receive a fair, equitable, and high quality education as well as to help close the achievement gaps. Title I uses federal monies that are supplemental, meaning outside the general fund to help meet the needs of low-achieving students in the highest-poverty schools. Schools that qualify for these funds deliver supplemental services through a comprehensive school-wide plan required by the law. The main goal is to close the achievement gap and equalize education for all students.
