Title I Information

What is Title I?

Title I is a federally funded education program which provides supplemental funds to assist eligible schools to meet educational school goals. Through a provision of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, the Federal government allocates funds to school districts around the country based on the number of low-income families in each district. Schools use their Title I funds to improve the achievement of children in their school, focusing on closing the achievement gap between high and low performing students.

An educationally disadvantaged student is one whose educational readiness or educational achievement is below average for his or her age or grade level in terms of specified expected outcomes in literacy: reading, writing, speaking, listening, or mathematics and/ or who is eligible to participate in the national free or reduced–price lunch program.

How are the funds used?

The Lake Zurich Schools that qualify for Title I funds, use the funds for Target Support for the benefit of identified students in the school. Title I is not a standalone program, but it is coordinated with other district, state and federal funds to drive improved achievement in the schools. Some examples of what the supplemental Title I funding provides are: instructional support, additional student, parent and teacher materials; parent education and family programs; extended day learning opportunities for students; and professional development for teachers. Each year, the grant is written to reflect and support school improvement goals.

What do I know about my child's teacher?

The federal education law called the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) requires that all parents in a Title I school be notified and given the opportunity to request information about the professional qualifications of classroom teachers instructing their child. If you are interested in this information, you may send your request to the building principal who will provide a response.
