Title I Part A: College and Career Ready

The Title I Part A program provides financial assistance each year to Local Educational Agencies (LEAs) and schools with high numbers or high percentages of children from low-income families to help ensure that all students have equitable opportunities to meet challenging state academic standards. Funds are used to provide supplemental educational services and resources to meet the needs of economically and educationally disadvantaged students.

Schoolwide Title I Programs

Title I schools that serve percentages of students from low-income families of 40 percent or more may use Title I funds, along with other Federal, State, and local funds, to operate a "schoolwide Title I program" to enhance the instructional program for the whole school. Schoolwide Title I programs must use evidence-based instructional strategies and implement parental involvement activities.

Targeted Assistance Title I Programs

Title I schools with less than the 40 percent schoolwide low-income threshold or that choose not to operate a schoolwide program may offer a "targeted assistance Title I program" in which the school identifies students who are failing, or most at risk of failing, to meet the State's challenging academic achievement standards. Targeted assistance schools design an instructional program to meet the needs of those students. Schools that operate targeted assistance Title I programs must use evidence-based instructional strategies and implement parental involvement activities.
