Title I

What is Title 1?

  • Title I programs are federally funded instruction that is in addition to core reading and math classes for students who are struggling to meet the state standards.
  • The federal government gives funds to Delaware through the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) to divide among school districts based on their percentage of low-income families and participating schools. Colonial uses its Title I funds for at-risk students to operate supplemental programs in reading and math. These programs are in compliance with Response to Intervention (RTI), another federal mandate.
