• What is Title 1?

    Title 1 is a federally funded program that provides assistance for the nation's schools. Title 1 took effect July 1, 1995, and replaced what was called Chapter 1. Title 1 funds enhance the educational programs at the school and encourage parent involvement throughout the school year.


    The goal of Title 1 is highest student achievement for all children. In order to meet this goal, home and school partnerships are essential. Families are asked to sign a compact. A compact is a voluntary pledge or agreement among parents, students and teachers who agree to work together so that all children succeed in school.
