Title I


Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act provides financial assistance to support instructional programs in school divisions and schools with high numbers or percentages of low-income students to ensure that all children met challenging content and achievement standards.  Title I also authorizes federal grant programs that provide funds for services to English Language Learners, services to homeless, neglected and delinquent children.  Title I money must be used to supplement, not replace, what is provided by the local school district for all other schools.

Title I funding helps increase student achievement and strengthen communities.  Title I programs vary from school to school, but the goal at every school is ensuring that all children have a high-quality education.  All Bedford County Public Schools, whether they receive Title I money or not, provide an engaging and relevant education that prepares every student to adapt and thrive in a rapidly changing world.   Here is what Title I does:

  • provides additional instruction to help eligible students improve reading, writing or math skills in kindergarten through fifth grade
  • coordinates all instructional activities within the traditional classroom, virtual classroom or subject area teacher to foster more effective learning
  • provides a varied to instructional approaches and materials that supplement Bedford County Public Schools language arts and mathematics curricula
  • provides individual and small group supplemental instruction
  • promotes socio-emotional well-being to help children reach their full potential
  • extends the school year with opportunities and assistance for Title I students to attend summer session
  • encourages parent and family involvement through parent conferences and workshops

Parental and family involvement at all grade levels is essential in all Title I schools.  In addition to holding an annual meeting, Title I schools offer these opportunities:

  • Invite and welcome parents and families as active participants in student learning and school activities
  • Provide opportunities for parents and families to gain greater insight into children’s educational, social and emotional needs through meetings and workshops
  • Collaboration between parents/families and Title I schools.
  • Include translating and interpreting services (available upon request)
