Central Elementary School
The Purpose of Title 1 Schools
Title 1 schools provide students with extra instructional support beyond the regular classroom to help low-achieving children meet state standards in core academic subjects. They coordinate and integrate resources and services from federal, state, and local sources. To be considered for title 1 school funds, at least 40% of the students must be considered low-income.
The fund provides over $14 billion a year to school systems all over the country for struggling students (students who are at risk of failing or living at or near poverty) and it reaches over six million students, primarily in the elementary grades.
