Title I Schools

Schools qualify for Title 1 federal funds based on the economic status of the students it serves. The factors taken into consideration are free/reduced lunch enrollment, Aid for Dependent Children, census and Medicaid data. Once a school qualifies for Title 1 funding, academic need, not economic status, determines which services are offered to each student. In addition, some Title 1 funds are used to upgrade the core educational program for all students.
