Title 1

What is a Title One school?

Title I, Part A (Title I) of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, as amended (ESEA) provides financial assistance to local educational agencies (LEAs) and schools with high numbers or high percentages of children from low-income families to help ensure that all children meet challenging state academic standards.

How does a school qualify for Title 1?

Schools in which children from low-income families make up at least 40 percent of enrollment are eligible to use Title I funds for school wide programs that serve all children in the school. LEAs also must use Title I funds to provide academic enrichment services to eligible children enrolled in private schools.

Title 1 Parent Meeting:

As we progress through the school year we enjoy watching our students show hope and promise with endless possibilities for their future. The Gananda Central School District wants to see that these possibilities are realized. As the parent of a child receiving Title 1 services such as Reading Intervention, Summer Programs and the After School Club and you are an essential part of a team that promotes your child’s education at school and at home.
 

Educational research has shown that students with involved parents :

  • Earn higher grades and test scores
  • Enroll in higher level programs
  • Adapt well to school and attend regularly
  • Have better social skills and behaviors
  • Graduate and go on to higher education
 
If you have further questions about Title 1 at Gananda, please feel free to contact me.
