Title I Frequently Asked Questions
What is Title I?
Title I refers to federal funding that our school receives under the Elementary and Secondary School Act (ESEA) formerly known as No Child Left Behind.
Why is Bartlett Elementary a Title I School?
A school’s Title I eligibility is solely determined by the percentage of students in the school who qualify for free or reduced lunch. When 40% or more of a school’s student population qualify for free or reduced lunch, the school is eligible to receive Title I funding.
How can the school spend Title I money?
First, this money can only be spent with input from all stakeholders! Parent, teacher and community input is extremely important when planning our budget. Title I money may be spent in five categories:
1.Supplemental Educational Materials
4.Parental Involvement and Training
5.Professional Development for Teachers
