The Basics of Title 1 Schools
The Title 1 program is the oldest and largest federally funded education program. Dating back to 1965, there are 1000’s of schools participating nationwide in an effort to help bridge the gap between low income students and the rest of the student population.
There are 2 forms of Title 1
The first is Title 1 Targeted Assistance Program, which is a supplemental program for schools possessing a poverty level below 40% with funds being allocated to programs or activities that assist primarily the vulnerable population.
The second is Title 1 Schoolwide Program, designed for schools possessing a poverty rate of 40% or above. This allows the funds to be allocated over the school as a whole.
