TITLE I: Improving the Academic Achievement of Students at Risk

Title I, Part A is the largest federal program supporting public education. Title I provides resources to help ensure that all children have the opportunity to receive a quality education, resulting in their attainment of high academic standards. The US Department of Education allocates funds based on census poverty rates from ages 5 through 17.
