Title I, Part A

Title I, Part A is the portion of federal law granting supplemental funds to schools with high poverty rates. Schools are served with Title I funds in rank order on a per-pupil basis. The rank order is determined by the percentage of low-income students compared to the overall student population.

Title I funded schools fall into two categories: Targeted Assistance or Schoolwide.Targeted Assistance schools are schools that identify which students are at most risk of failing to meet the state's challenging performance standards and develop an instructional program to meet the needs of those particular students.Schoolwide schools use Title funding to improve the instructional program for all students in the school.

Both schoolwide and targeted programs must work with parents, teachers, administrators, and other stakeholders to develop a plan of improving student achievement using research-based methods that include parental involvement strategies.
