What is Title I
Part of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act currently known as No Child Left Behind (NCLB), Title I is a federal entitlement program that provides the district and schools serving low income families with funds to improve student achievement. District and school allocations are based on the number and percentage of students who are eligible for free or reduced-price lunches. Moreover, the purpose of Title I is to provide additional academic assistance beyond the general classroom to at-risk students.
Our school provides Title I services to earners in grades K-8. Specifically, the school conducts a series of assessments to help identify students that show an increased need for Title I services and intervention. However, Columbus Arts & Technology Academy will continually track data and monitor academic achievement throughout the school year to ensure that students in need of additional support receive that assistance.
