Purpose of Title I
Title I (of the federal Every Student Succeeds Act) is a federal program that provides opportunities for the children served to acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to meet challenging state content standards.
Title I resources are distributed to schools where needs are the greatest, in amounts sufficient to make a difference in the improvement of instruction.
Title I coordinates services with other educational services and, to the degree possible, with health and social services programs.
Title I provides greater decision-making authority and flexibility within the schools and for teachers. However, greater responsibility for student performance is the exchange made for this flexibility.
