Title I is a federally funded program designed to help students meet academic standards in reading and math in order to succeed in school. Title I-A is a section of Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) that established these programs. It is formula-funded based on poverty levels, but the services provided are for students at-risk of not meeting Arizona's K-12 Standards in reading and math, so that they can improve their skills, succeed in the regular classroom and reach grade-level proficiency.
The purpose of Title I is to provide all children significant opportunity to receive a fair, equitable, high-quality education and to close educational achievement gaps. Title I supports our Title I schools to help ensure every child has access to an excellent education.
SUSD has nine schools that operate in the Title I Schoolwide Program that offer additional services.
Free all-day instruction for four-year-old students that live within the boundaries of a Title I elementary school.
Support resources for homeless children and youth so they can access free, appropriate public education.
SUSD collaborates with child welfare agencies to effectively address the educational needs of children in foster care.
