Title I is a
Federally funded program that
provides supplemental funding for improving student achievement
in high-poverty schools.
Schools qualify for
Title I funds according the number of children that receive
“free and reduced meals” enrolled in their school.
Schools that receive
Title I funding in Campbell County are identified as “schoolwide
Title I schools”. Being a “schoolwide
school” allows for the funding allocated for that school to be
spent to improve academic standards for the entire school and
not just for a targeted group of students.
expenditure of these funds is decided by a “schoolwide
committee” consisting of the principal, teacher
representatives, and parent representatives.
