What is a Title I school?
Title I schools are schools with high numbers or high percentages of children from low-income families. Financial assistance is provided to help ensure that all children meet challenging state academic standards. Title I funds are used to provide supplemental core academic instruction, instructional support, and parental involvement and engagement to ensure success for all students.
Title I, Part A is a federal program that provides financial assistance to local school systems and schools to support the academic achievement of disadvantaged students. The DeKalb County School District receives Title I funds which are distributed to schools within their districts so the schools can provide additional academic support and learning opportunities to help children master challenging curricula and meet state standards in core academic subjects. Title I funds support extra instruction in reading and mathematics, additional teachers, materials of instruction, as well as after-school and summer programs to extend and reinforce the regular school curriculum.
