Definition of Title I
Title I provides federal funding to schools to help students who need assistance in meeting grade level standards.
Title I funds are designed to provide educational supplements, and targets children who are most at risk of failing to meet the State's content objectives.
Targeted Assistance School

Only schools with a poverty rate of 40% or more may operate as a school wide program
The school must target students with clear entrance and exit criteria
