Title I, Part A


Title I is a federal program that provides funds to school districts and schools with high numbers or high percentages of children who are disadvantaged to support a variety of services. Its overall purpose is to ensure that all children have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach, at a minimum, proficiency on challenging state academic achievement standards and assessments. The grant contains provisions for ensuring that children who are disadvantaged enrolled in private schools also benefit from the academic enrichment services funded with Title I, Part A funds.

Program Elements

Critical program elements are:

  • needs assessment and program plan design,
  • parent involvement,
  • services to students enrolled in private schools,
  • high-quality teachers and paraprofessionals,


Title I Targeted Assistance


Title I funds in a Targeted Assistance school must be used to improve the academic achievement of identified Title I students. Students must be identified based on multiple, objective, educationally related criteria. Criteria must also be generated to determine when a student may exit the Title I program. Title I supplemental services may be delivered in a number of ways, i.e., in-class instruction; pull-out instruction; and/or extended day, week, or year instruction.

Title I teacher(s) must be highly qualified and are responsible for providing supplemental services to identified students. Title I staff must coordinate with other school personnel and involve parents in the planning, implementation, and evaluation of the Title I program. Districts with private schools must consult with private school representatives before making final determinations about the use of Title I funds.
