What is TITLE I?
Title I, Part A of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) provides financial assistance to states and school districts to meet the needs of educationally at-risk students. The goal of Title I is to provide extra instructional services and activities which support students identified as failing or most at risk of failing the state’s challenging performance standards in mathematics, reading, and writing.
Which schools does Title I Serve?
The program serves students in elementary and secondary (middle and high) schools who have demonstrated that extra assistance is needed. Title I also serves students who attend private schools. Currently, all elementary, middle, and high schools in Bibb County (with the exception of Springdale Elementary) are listed as School-wide Title One Schools.
