Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) is designed to help disadvantaged children meet challenging content and student performance standards. Funds are distributed to local schools that have high numbers of children from low-income families, for school programs to help support individual students most at risk of not meeting the standards, and to local institutions for neglected or delinquent children. All three of our schools meet the basic qualifications and are eligible to receive funds that have been allocated to our district in the area of Title I. School-wide vs Target-Assisted Schools
- A school within a district may apply for school-wide Title I status when their free or reduced lunch count is greater than 40%. By becoming school-wide designated, a school has the ability to serve all students within that school with the funding they have received. Targeted assistance schools are those who only serve the needs of students specifically identified as in need of assistance. The school must set criteria for determining the eligibility of students based on assessments and teacher referral.

Accelerated ReaderState Report Card
State and local school district report cards are critical tools for promoting accountability for schools, local school districts, and States by publicizing data about student performance and program effectiveness for parents, policy makers, and other stakeholders. Report cards help parents and the general public see where schools and districts are succeeding and where there is still work to do.
A well-informed public is an important resource in the school and district improvement process.
In the same way that data enable educators to make better decisions about teaching and learning, data can also help parents and other community members work more effectively with educators and local school officials to promote school change. Additionally, the more parents and community members know about the academic achievement of their children and their schools, the more likely they are to be involved in their local schools and the public school system. Equipped with information on academic results and teacher quality, parents and community members can make better decisions and choices. For these reasons, States and LEAs receiving Title I funds must prepare and disseminate annual report cards.
