Title I Funded Schools

For the 2023-2024 school year, the Title I Program will serve the needs of students at 34 public schools with a poverty rate of 55% or higher and 4 neglected/delinquent institutions for youth in Jefferson County. 



There are two types of Title I Schools. Schools are designated as either Schoolwide or Targeted Assistance.

Title I Schoolwide Schools

A Title I Schoolwide school receives funds for students and has gone through a year-long collaborative planning process to create a comprehensive plan for improving student achievement. This plan is developed by teachers, principals, paraprofessionals, support staff, parents, and community members. Schoolwide programs provide:

  • Flexibility - combining resources, serving all students, redesigning the school and its services
  • Coordination and Integration - reduction of curricular and instructional fragmentation
  • Accountability - clear and coordinated; all students are responsible for achieving the same high standards and all teachers are responsible for teaching to and assessing growth toward the standards and benchmarks.
  • Unified Goals - schoolwide programs bring parents, the community and the school together to redesign and improve the school.

Title I Targeted Assistance Schools

Title I Targeted Assistance schools are eligible to receive federal Title I funds based on the District's poverty indicator and where the school ranks among District schools using this indicator. The use of these funds are specifically for the greatest need students identified as being below grade level and struggling in literacy and/or math. The funds provide supplemental instruction, materials and parent involvement for these students as they move in and out of the Title I program.

Title I Institutions

Parts A and D of Title I provide funding for adjudicated, neglected, and delinquent youth in order to maintain or improve their academic performance while institutionalized. When students are released from these programs they can transition back into public or private schools more successfully. Jefferson County has four private institutions for neglected and delinquent youth.
