What is Title I?

Title I is the largest federal aid program for elementary and secondary schools. Funds are used to support supplemental services designed to improve the educational performance of AT-RISK children in high poverty schools. Students can be "pulled out" of their regular classes to receive supplementary instruction in Reading/Language Arts or Math, or the Title I teacher can provide in-class training.

  • Title I funds are intended to supplement, not supplant, the educational program.
  • Schools get Title I funds based on the percentage of students we have on free and reduced lunch.
  • Pickering High School is a school wide program.
