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