CSEE’s Title 1 Program
What is Title I?
Title I is the largest federal aid program for elementary, middle, and high schools. It serves millions of children in elementary and secondary schools each year. Through Title I, the Federal government gives money to school districts around the country based on the number of low-income families in each district. Each district uses its Title I money for extra educational services for children who are experiencing difficulty with reading and/or mathematics in order that they may be successful in the regular classroom.
Which students can get Title I help?
Students are selected for participation in the Title I program based on their performance on assessments, class work, and recommendation from parents and/or teachers. The Title I and classroom teachers work together to plan instruction that will best meet the student’s academic needs.
What will Title I do for my child?
The Title I program will provide your child with additional educational assistance beyond the regular classroom. The program generally offers:
- small group instruction in ELA and Math
- extra time for teaching Title I students the skills they need
- a variety of supplementary teaching methods
- special attention to meet individual needs
- additional teaching materials which supplement students’ regular instruction.
If my child is in Title I, how can I help?
Parents are an integral part of the Title I program in that the support given by the parent in helping their child is an essential component to student success. As parents, you can influence the success of your child in school more than any teacher or federal program
