What is Title I ?
Title I of the federal No Child Left Behind legislation is a federal program that provides opportunities for the children served to acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to meet challenging state content standards.
Title I resources are distributed to schools where needs are the greatest in amounts sufficient to make a difference in the improvement of instruction.
Title I provides greater decision-making authority and flexibility within the schools. However, greater responsibility for student performance is the exchange made for this flexibility.
At Waterloo Elementary we have used some of our Title I funds to purchase parent resources available for home use. These materials may be found in our parenting room, guidance counselor's office, and in the library.
