What is a Title 1 school?

A “Title 1” school has a large concentration of low-income students and receives supplemental funds to assist in meeting student’s educational goals. For an entire school to quality for Title 1 funds, at least 40% of students must enroll in the free and reduced lunch program. But the help can’t stop there. They need the ongoing support of their community to make sure their students are afforded the same chances as any other student in our county.
