    What is the Purpose of Title I Funding?

    According to the U.S. Department of Education the purpose of Title I 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 I 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 I funds, at least 40% of students must enroll in the free and reduced lunch program.




      Title I Parent Training Academy workshops are designed to instruct parents on effective methods that can assist their child(ren) learning. Parents will learn best practices and/or instructional strategies used in the classroom to promote student achievement, parenting skills, financial literacy, health and wellness and personal growth.

      The goals of the Title I Parent Training Academy are to:

      • Explain the Title I Program.
      • Improve parenting and literacy skills.
      • Model instructional strategies that can be used at home to help students with reading/writing, math and science.

      There are nine training sessions, which includes an Orientation and the Annual Parent Seminar.  Parent Training Academies are held at 7:00 p.m. at various locations.  If you are interested in attending these informative workshops contact the Title I Parent Involvement Program at 754-321-1410.
