What is Title I?
Title IA is a federally funded grant program. First started in 1964, it is the largest grant under George W. Bush’s No Child Left Behind Act.
The purpose of Title I is to provide additional support for schools that serve children who have risk factors like poverty or high mobility. Research has demonstrated that these factors make it more difficult for children to be successful in school.

Principals, teachers and Title I parents develop a plan for how they can use this money so that all students can achieve to their highest potential.
