Explanation of Title 1: Each school in our district that receives federal funds from Title I have to meet a number of requirements, one of the requirements is to hold an annual Title I Parent meeting where we highlight what we will do this year to increase educational achievement, increase parent involvement, and how we use Title I funds in our school. We also provide copies of our Parent Involvement Plan and Comprehensive Title I School Plan.
Title 1 is the largest federal funded education program in the United States. (see: US Dept. of Education)
Title 1 of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (formerly known as ECIA, ESEA or Chapter 1) is the largest federally funded educational program.
