What is the Title 1 Program?

Title 1 is the nation’s oldest and largest federally funded program. This program is committed to closing the achievement gap between all students and is in place to improve fundamental goals of helping at-risk students.  At-risk students are those who are performing below expected grade level standards.  According to the U.S. Department of Education the purpose of Title 1 funding, “is to ensure that all children have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high quality education and reach, at minimum, proficiency on challenging state academic achievement standards and state academic assessments.”  USD 434 initiated the Title I Math Program in August 2009.
