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.
