Federal Title I Program Information

School-wide Program
Neglected Program
Delinquent Program
Homeless Program

The Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), Title I, became law April 11, 1965. Since this time, the law has been amended four times: In 1988, 1995, 2001 and most recently amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) of 2015.

Schools: Title I is designed to help students served by the program to achieve proficiency on challenging State academic achievement standards. Title I schools with percentages of students from low-income families of at least 40 percent may use Title I funds, along with other Federal, State, and local funds, to operate a "schoolwide program" to upgrade the instructional program for the whole school. Title I schools with less than the 40 percent schoolwide threshold or that choose not to operate a schoolwide program offer a "targeted assistance program" in which the school identifies students who are failing, or most at risk of failing, to meet the State's challenging academic achievement standards. Targeted assistance schools design, in consultation with parents, staff, and district staff, an instructional program to meet the needs of those students. Both schoolwide and targeted assistance programs must use instructional strategies based on scientifically based research and implement parental involvement activities. (from U.S. Department of Education, Title I, Part A)

District: The District through its analysis of data, the needs of the students it services, and planning with the funds available, determines the appropriate program and the grade levels it will focus on to improve student achievement. While all buildings in a district may be eligible to be served by Title I funds, the District may concentrate on the buildings with the greatest student need.

The Warren City School District utilizes Title I funds to provide services in each of the following Title I schoolwide buildings:  Jefferson PK-8, Lincoln PK-8, McGuffey PK-8, Willard PK-8, and Warren G. Harding High School.

Other Services: In addition to services provided to District students on a daily basis, Title I provides funds to service special need populations of students. The Warren City School District receives additional funds to provide supplemental services for neglected and delinquent students.

School-wide Program

Components

There are three required components of a schoolwide program that are essential to effective implementation:

  1. Conducting a comprehensive needs assessment that considers the academic needs of children, particularly those who are failing or are at-risk of failing, to meet the challenging State academic standards.
  2. Preparing a comprehensive schoolwide plan that describes how the school will improve academic achievement throughout the school, particularly for the lowest-achieving students, by addressing the needs identified in the comprehensive needs assessment. This plan may be integrated into an existing improvement plan.
  3. Annually reviewing and revising, as necessary, the schoolwide plan using data from the State’s assessments, other student performance data, and perception data to determine if the schoolwide program has been effective in addressing the major problem areas and, in turn, increasing student achievement, particularly for the lowest-achieving students.

Homeless Program

The purpose of the McKinney-Vento Homeless Children and Youth Program is to ensure that all children and youth have equal access to the same free and appropriate public education, including preschool education, as non-homeless children and youth.

State and local educational agencies are required to develop, review and revise policies to remove barriers to the enrollment, attendance and success in school that homeless children and youth may experience. Local educational agencies must also provide homeless children and youth with the opportunity to meet the same challenging state content and state student performance standards to which all students are held.

For additional information or if you have questions, please contact the Office of Community Outreach, Warren City School District, 330-841-2321, ext. 7220.
