What is Title I?
Title I is a federally funded program under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA), as amended by the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB) which provides financial assistance to qualifying schools to help students meet our state's standards.
Schools qualify for Title I funds based on the school’s percentage of students who meet the criteria to receive free or reduced price lunch.
