Largest portion is Title I.A improving the academic achievement of the disadvantaged

Title I.D Prevention and intervention programs for delinquent and at-risk students
The U.S. Department of Education provides Title I funds to states to give to school districts based on the number of children from low-income families in each district.
Based on a poverty census
Districts must serve all buildings with a percentage of low-income children of 75% or higher
Eligible schools are ranked by free/reduced lunch percentage and funds are allocated
Districts can’t allocate money to schools with below 35% free/reduced lunch rates

Funds are used to serve the most academically at risk students as determined through multi-criteria. Only teachers with students served by Title I may access these funds for professional development or supplies.
All students are eligible for services based upon the school’s Title I school-wide plan. All teachers are now Title I teachers and may access Title I site funds based on the school-wide plan for professional development and supplies.

Title I schools whose Student Gap Groups are among the lowest-performing in the state over the past three years
Title I schools that demonstrated high performance, high progress, or both, on measures of academic achievement over the last three years
Among the lowest-performing Title I schools in the state for overall student achievement in English language arts and mathematics on state assessments over the past three years
OTIS (Other Title I Schools)
Title I schools that are close to being identified as focus schools based on their AMOs for the past 3 years in language arts and math.
When will a focus school be eligible to exit?
Schools will be exited from focus status when the school no longer meets the definition of a focus school for three consecutive years and demonstrates that the Student Gap Group that caused the school to be identified as a focus school has decreased the number of non-proficient students by 3 percent over a period of three years in both English language arts and mathematics.
The Super Subgroup
Comprised of five subgroups; black students, Hispanic students, low-income students, students with disabilities and English language learners. Use of a Super Subgroup allows for inclusion of students otherwise missed due to a low number of students in a single subgroup, eliminates a duplicated count of an individual student who may fall into numerous subgroups, and holds all districts accountable for the same number of subgroups
