    What is the Purpose of Title 1 Funding?

    According to the U.S. Department of Education the purpose of Title 1 funding,
    “is to ensure that all children have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain
    a high quality education and reach, at minimum, proficiency on challenging state
    academic achievement standards and state academic assessments.”
    The basic principles of Title 1 state that schools with large concentrations of low-income students
    will receive supplemental funds to assist in meeting student’s educational goals.
    Low-income students are determined by the number of students enrolled in the
    free and reduced lunch program. For an entire school to qualify for Title 1 funds, at least 50% of students
    must enroll in the free and reduced lunch program
