Title I Funding


    Title I is a federal program that provides funds to school districts and schools with high numbers of high percentages of children who are disadvantaged to support a variety of services. The overall purpose of Title I funding is to ensure that all children have a fair, equal and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach, at a minimum, proficiency on challenging state academic achievement standards and assessments.
    The ESSA grant contains provisions for ensuring that children who are disadvantaged and enrolled in private schools also benefit from the academic enrichment services funded with Title I, Part A funds.
    This webpage was created to share more information about Title I funding within the Marshall High School feeder pattern.
