Title I: Part A

  • Title I is the largest federal program supporting education. The program provides supplemental educational services for all children to have a fair, equal and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education.

    Title I provides flexible funding that may be used to provide instructional staff, professional development, extended-time programs, and other strategies for raising student achievement in high-poverty schools. Title I targets these resources to the schools where the needs are the greatest.

    Title I services for private school students are developed in consultation with officials of the private schools. The amount of Title I funds allocated to each participating public school attendance area is determined on the basis of the total number of low-income students, both public and private, residing in the schools' attendance area. Expenditures for private school students in each area generally are determined based on the number of students from low-income families residing in that area who attend the private school.
