Title I was passed in 1965 under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA). It is the largest federal assistance program for our nation’s schools. Title I schools receive extra funding (Title I dollars) from the federal government. These dollars are used to:

  • Identify students experiencing academic difficulties and provide assistance to help these students;
  • Hire additional personnel
  • Purchase supplemental programs, materials, and/or supplies; and
  • Conduct parent and family engagement meetings, trainings, events, and/or activities
  • All schools in Haywood County Schools receive Title I funds
