Title I Information
Polk Avenue is a Title One School? What is that exactly and what does that mean to me?
- Title I can help children be more successful in school
- Parents have a voice in their child’s education
- Teachers realize the contributions of parents to their child’s education.
How does Title I work?
Federal government provides funds to States each year for Title I after the state sends in a plan describing:
- What children know and should be able to do
- High-quality standards that children are expected to meet.
- Ways their progress will measured
Then the State education agencies send the money to school
Districts based on the numbers of families that receives free and reduced lunch. And then the Local School District or Lea identifies eligible schools and distributes the funds.
Parents, Teachers, Administrators, and Staff will:

Develop programs that supplement classroom instruction
Involve parents in every part of the program
