WELCOME to the Title I Federal Program office

Our office works cooperatively with the office of Business Services, Teaching and Learning, school principals and Instructional support staff to ensure that Title I funds are managed properly and that government funds are consistently utilized across offices and schools in accordance with applicable State and Federal laws, regulations, EDGAR, Federal Office of Management and Budget (OMB) circulars, and specific grant terms and conditions. To support that effort, Title I develops policies, procedures and provides operational support to program personnel for best practice grant management and compliance. Title I works closely with the Superintendent, BOE, Parents Advisory, FACE, Title I schools, and private schools to ensure the very best program for the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA).

Title I is SPS186 largest grant. The tabs on the left side of this site will give detail and compliance on each section of Title I.

No Child Left Behind (NCLB) and Title I

The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 is directly aligned to the Title I program. The NCLB Act creates funding through the Title I program that schools receive. Schools are now held accountable to their students, families, and community more than ever through Academic Standards testing. Families need to work very closely with schools to make sure their child(ren) are making adequately yearly progress. Title I schools that are not making adequate yearly progress are held to higher standards than non-Title I schools. Schools that do not meet AYP in one year are placed on academic warning. Schools that do not meet AYP in more years than one are placed in academic status. There are several levels to the academic status that a Title I school could be placed in. Schools not making academic progress in two or more years must offer Public School Choice to all students. Schools not making academic progress in three or more years must offer PSC and Supplemental Educational Services. Schools not making academic progress in four or more years are placed in corrective action or restructuring. More information on PSC and SES are listed under the Title I program.
