Title I

Title I provides financial assistance to districts 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. Federal funds are currently allocated through formulas that are based primarily on census poverty estimates and the cost of education in each state.  In Braintree, both Ross and Morrison Elementary Schools receive funds to support a school-wide program with resources dedicated to supporting all students with assistance in reading and/or math.  Please contact John Riordan at Morrison or Frank McGourty at Ross if you have questions regarding Title I.

The expanded supports in Title I significantly increase the opportunities for schools, districts, and states to raise the achievement of all students, but particularly those who are the intended beneficiaries of Title I. The flexibility to consolidate funds and programs allow schools to focus on improving the achievement of those who most need support. By allowing schools to integrate programs, strategies, and resources, Title I can become the catalyst for comprehensive reform of the entire instructional program the students in these schools receive.
