Title I, Part A federal funds help to meet the educational needs of low-achieving students in California’s high-poverty schools. Funds are used to support effective, research-based educational strategies that close the achievement gap between high-and low-performing students and enable the students to meet the state’s challenging academic standards.
Students who are Title 1 and are not performing at grade level will strategically be provided with after school interventions and or support classes within the school day.
