Title I, the foundation of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, is one of the largest federal education programs. Title I funding reaches approximately 12.5 million students enrolled in private and public schools, which can include preschool through high school students.
Title I provides financial assistance to schools with large numbers of economically-disadvantaged students to ensure that all students meet state requirements and academic achievement standards, and to support parental involvement. Based on the needs of their student subgroups, Title I schools design instructional programs and provide student services to supplement existing programs that are financed through local, state, and other federal funds. The ultimate goal is to raise student achievement.
All Hertford County Public Schools are schoolwide Title I schools in which funds are used to serve all students in order to increase student achievement. Schools receiving Title I funding are served by highly qualified teachers.
