The Title I program is designed to ensure that all children have an equal opportunity to obtain a high quality education and reach proficiency on state academic achievement assessments. All students who fail the STAAR test and attend a Title I school automatically qualify for services. Students performing under 25th percentile can also receive services. Additional staff positions and teaching resources are funded with the Title I federal grant money. This allows identified students to receive the additional help needed to close their achievement gap.
The eligibility of a school to receive Title I services is determined by the percentage of students receiving free or reduced cost meals and students that have demonstrated a need for services. After a campus qualifies as a Title I school, students generally receive instruction in small groups by a highly qualified teacher. The Title I classes are supplemental and do not take the place of regular classroom instruction.
