What is Title One?
Title One is the largest federal aid program for schools. In order to be a Title One school, a
school must have at least 40% of it's students on free or reduced lunch status by the 135th day
of school. Through the Title One program, the federal government allocates money to school
districts around the country based on the income level of families in each school district. Each
district uses its Title One funds to provide additional educational services to students. These
programs are designed to enhance the academic program at eligible school wide sites.
