Title I Part A

Title I

What is Title I?

Title I is the largest federal assistance program for our nation's schools, which provides supplemental services to schools who qualify based on socio-economic status of the students. The goal of Title I is a higher quality of education for every child. The program serves millions of children in elementary and secondary schools each year. 

How does it work?

The federal government provides funding to states each year for Title I. The Florida Department of Education sends funds to the school district, who identifies eligible schools and provides Title I funding to those schools. All Title I schools in Walton County School District implement school-wide programs, meaning every child enrolled at those schools are served. These services target improving the education of children in high-poverty schools by continuing to support and encourage parental involvement, improving instructional quality and methods, and providing additional research-based materials. 

Title I Goals

  • Close the achievement gap of low achieving students in high poverty schools
  • Make informed decisions based on student achievement
  • Align services with academic standards to measure progress
  • Improve teacher quality
  • Improve parent engagement 
  • Provide research-based programs
  • Coordinate services
