Lancaster High School is classified as a Title 1 school because our school's population has 77% free or reduced lunch. A Title 1 school is a school receiving federal funds for students to assist in meeting the students’ educational goals.
Summary of District-Wide Title I Plan
For the 2023-2024 school year, our district allocated 89% of the district’s federal Title I allocation directly to the schools.
Students in eleven public schools in our district receive the benefits of these funds.
The distribution of Title I funds to a school is based upon the number of students in the school who qualify for free or reduced lunch.
Resources are distributed to schools where needs are the greatest and in amounts sufficient to make a difference in the improvement of instruction.
The portion of Title I funds not allocated to schools are expended on district-wide Title I activities
to assist in improving the instructional program in all Title I schools and
to ensure that the schools and the district continue to be in compliance with Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) regulations.
