Title I, Part A is the largest source of federal education funding. The goal of Title I is to improve achievement in high-poverty schools by providing additional academic support and learning opportunities for the education of low achieving, disadvantaged students.
Title I funding is distributed to schools based on a formula, which means schools do not compete for the funds. Schools with 15% or more of children in poverty may be selected as Title I schools. Those with 40% or more can operate school-wide programs. Schools with 75% are required to receive Title I funds.
Schools must use Title I funds to help students meet state academic standards. Among other expenses, schools may provide extra teachers, intervention programs, supplemental materials, technology, and professional development.
