What is Title I?

Title I is the largest federal aid program for elementary, middle, and high schools. It serves millions of children in elementary and secondary schools each year. Through Title I, the Federal government gives money to school districts around the country based on the number of low-income families in each district. Each district uses its Title I money for extra educational services to help ensure that all children meet challenging state academic standards so that they may be successful in the regular classroom. The Sumter County School District receives Title I funds.
