Title 1 is the largest federally funded educational program. The basic principle of Title 1 is that schools with large concentrations of low-income students will receive supplemental funds to assist in meeting student’s educational goals. The number of low-income students is determined by the number of students enrolled in the free and reduced lunch program. Title 1 funds can be used to improve curriculum, instructional activities, counseling, parental involvement, and increase staff and program improvement.

students benefit from Title 1 funding!

We are all so excited to have the opportunity to work with your child during JET Time. Please do not hesitate to send me an email if you have any questions or concerns about your child's reading.
