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.
With the Title I designation comes certain federal guidelines and restrictions; however, the additional funding enables us to provide a quality education for our students. In addition to equipment and technology, we are able to hire additional highly qualified teachers to populate our classrooms.

Alert Schools are identified based on lower than average graduation rates, lower performance by the all student group and lower in particular subject areas on statewide assessments. Alert School is defined as a: A Title I or non-Title I School in state Based on the lowest achievement of the “all students” group in terms of proficiency on the statewide assessment Has demonstrated a lack of progress on state assessments over three years in the “all students” group Is not identified as a Priority School or Focus School
