What Is Title I?

Title I is the largest federal grant program used to ensure that all children have a fair and equal opportunity to obtain a high quality education. Title I is a part of the Federal Elementary and Secondary Education Act that was passed in 1965.  This grant provides extra academic support and learning opportunities for children who are most at-risk of failing state and local standards.
