Title I Funds
Title I funds must be used to promote:
• High academic/achievement for all children;
• A greater focus on teaching and learning;
• Flexibility to stimulate local initiatives coupled with responsibility for student performance;
• Improved linkages among schools, parents and communities.
Title I - Program Purpose
Title I Programs (Part A of PL 107-334 of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001), provide funds to districts in order to assist schools with the highest levels of economically disadvantaged youngsters to:
• improve in student achievement for all participating children,
• improve staff development and
• improve parental and community involvement.
In accordance with federal law, funds are allocated directly to schools to work toward these three goals.
