The Mission of the Title I Office is to provide meaningful resources and support to schools in order to engage students in appropriate opportunities that promote success and develop a culture of becoming college and career ready.

The Vision of the Title I Office is to ensure that all students will graduate and be well prepared citizens to meet the challenging expectations of the 21st century by collaborating with schools, central office content, data, and family support offices, as well as the greater community to prepare teachers, students, and parents for academic success.

What is Title I?

Title I, Part A is a federal program that provides financial assistance to local school systems and schools with high percentages of poor children to support the academic achievement of disadvantaged students. All twenty-four local school systems in Maryland receive Title I funds which are distributed to high poverty schools within their districts so the schools can provide additional academic support and learning opportunities to help low-achieving children master challenging curricula and meet state standards in core academic subjects. Title I funds support extra instruction in reading and mathematics, additional teachers, materials of instruction, as well as after-school and summer programs to extend and reinforce the regular school curriculum.

How Will Title I Help My Child?

In addition to what is already provided by the county to each school for the educational program, Title I schools receive the following:

  • Additional Teachers, Aides and/or technology.

  • Additional Professional Development.

  • Supplemental instructional materials and programs.

How Do Schools Receive Title I Funds?

The federal government provides funding to each state.  State educational agencies send this money to school districts.  The number of low-income students attending each school is the determining factor for how much money each school will receive, if any.
