Title I provides federal funding to schools to help students who are low achieving or at most risk of falling behind. Title I funds are allocated to schools based on the percentage of students receiving free/reduced lunch. Schools with a percentage of at least 40% are eligible for a schoolwide program. Brown Local Schools is designated as a schoolwide program.
Title I money is used to improve academic achievement in reading and math. This is achieved through the hiring of paraprofessionals, supplementing curriculum, enhancing parent involvement, reducing class size, and extending learning time for students who need extra help. These opportunities are provided to students throughout the district. Title I funds are used to serve all children in order to raise academic achievement.
Title I funds will be used to provide additional assistance to all students who experience difficulties in meeting the State’s performance targets.
