What is Title I?

Title I is a federal program that has been in existence since 1965. The goal of Title I is to provide instructional services and activities to meet the needs of educationally disadvantaged children. It is part of the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) legislation from the federal government.

Title I schools in the MPS system can help:

1. Children
* improve their reading and math achievements by providing research-based reading and math instruction guided by research-based assessment.
* learn and apply research-based reading and math strategies.

2. Parents
*become a partner in their children's education through communication, involvement, and education.

3. Classroom Teachers
* by providing assessment and progress monitoring data to inform instruction in the classroom.
* by providing substantial instructional intervention in reading and math to their students.
* by developing research-based programs to supplement the regular classroom instruction in reading and math.
