What is Title I?

Title I, Part A of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act is a federal program that 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 that support students identified as failing or at risk of failing the state’s performance standards in math, reading and/or writing.

The Title I program at Marshall is designed to assist students in meeting grade-level standards in reading and/or math. Title I services can be provided during or outside of core instruction time. These services focus on specific skills and practices needed by the student to improve academic performance. When services are delivered in small groups, each group is led by an intervention teacher or paraprofessional.
