The purpose of a Title I program is to help at-risk students meet the state’s challenging academic content and performance standards. Schools qualify for Title I funds based on economic need. Title I offers a variety of services for participating schools which may include: additional teachers and support staff, extra time for instruction, a variety off teaching methods and materials, smaller classes, and additional training for staff.

Title I, Part A (Title I) of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), as amended by the ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act), provides financial assistance to Clover Garden and schools with high percentages of children from low-income families. Through the use of Title I funds, we can provide additional programs and resources to help ensure that all children meet challenging state requirements.

The Goals of Title I ensure that all children have a fair and significant opportunity to obtain a high quality education, improve the academic achievement of the disadvantaged by providing extra funding to Title I designated schools and provide parents with meaningful opportunities to participate in the education of their children.
