Title I is a federally funded education program that provides financial assistance to local schools in order to meet the current educational needs and improve opportunities for children who need help in Reading and Mathematics.
To receive funds from the federal government, each state must submit a plan describing the standards all children are expected to meet and indicate the methods by which progress will be measured. Once granted funds, state educational agencies (SEA) send money to school districts based on the number of low-income families. The local educational agency (LEA) then identifies eligible schools and provides Title I funds to those that qualify. The money is intended to improve the quality of education in high-poverty schools and/or give extra help to struggling students.
