Title I Services in Killip Elementary School
What is Title I?
Title I is the largest federally funded program for elementary and secondary education. Title I funding helps schools provide equal educational opportunities for low-performing students in schools with economic need. FUSD Elementary schools with 40% or more students eligible for free or reduced lunch receive Title I funds. The goal of Title I is to enable all students to be on grade level in reading and math and to meet State Standards
FUSD’s Title I program serves students in grades K-5. Title I provides both reading and math support to identified schools. Title I instruction in these schools supplements regular classroom instruction.
