What is Title I? Title I is a federally funded program that is “intended to help ensure that all children have the opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach proficiency on challenging state academic standards and assessments” (No Child Left Behind: U.S. Department of Education, 2003).
The focus of the Title I is to promote significant improvements in schools and increase instruction time for students. This instructional time is in addition and is supplemental to the time the regular classroom teacher gives to each student. Pull-out as well as push-in class instruction is encouraged. Classes consist of a small group setting allowing more individual response time with immediate feedback.
Title I, Part A funds are distributed to school districts based on poverty data. Districts determine which eligible buildings are to participate based on federal requirements and local decisions. The purpose of this funding is to provide supplemental funding to economically disadvantaged districts and some of their eligible schools for improving educational outcomes for students.
