Local District WestTitle I Program
"The purpose of Title I 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 State academic assessments."-United States Department of Education
Title I Program
The Title I program receives federal funding from the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA/Title I, No Child Left Behind Act of 2001). Title I funds are allocated to schools based on poverty percentages on the annual Title I ranking. These percentages are determined by the number of low-income students, aged 5 to 17, enrolled on CBEDS day who qualify for free- or reduced-price meals or CALWORKS. The intent of Title I program is to meet the educational needs of children in low-income households and children in local institutions for neglected or delinquent children. Participants include students who are at risk of failing, disabled, and English Learners. The Title I program supplements services needed to raise the academic achievement level of kindergarten through grade 12 participants in basic and advanced skills.
