What is Title 1?
Title 1 is the largest fund of money from the federal No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB). Money is sent to the state to distribute to districts following formulas provided by the U.S. Department of Education. Allocations are determined by the district’s Census Poverty Count. The funds are to be used to provide service to students who are not meeting the school and district’s academic standards. The programs and services MUST be supplemental; the district cannot use the money to pay for its basic obligations.
