Title I Resources

Title I is a part of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB). It is designed to ensure that all children have the opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach proficiency on challenging state academic standards and assessment.

Title I funds may be used for a variety of services and activities, most commonly for instruction in reading and mathematics. Fund flexibility may be used to provide additional instructional staff, professional development, extended-time programs, and other strategies for raising student achievement. The program promotes school-wide reform in high-poverty schools to ensure students’ access to scientifically based instructional strategies and challenging academic content.

A major part of Title I, Part A is the parent component. Schools must ensure that strong strategies are in place to build capacity to involve parents as effective partners with the school. Schools build capacity for parent involvement in the school by helping parents understand academic content standards, state and academic achievement standards, state and local academic assessments, and provide materials and training to assist their children, educating staff in the value and utility of contributions, ensuring that information is sent to parents in an understandable language, and providing other reasonable support as requested.

All elementary and middle schools in Carroll County are designated as Title I School-wide
