Title I

Welcome to our school's Title I page!  Here you will find information and resources about Title I in general as well as Title I at TPES.
The purpose of Tennessee's federally funded Title I, Part A Program is to support local school districts improve teaching and learning for students in high-poverty schools so that these students meet the state's challenging content and performance standards.  According to the US Department of Education, the purpose of Title I funding is “to ensure that all children have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high quality education and reach, at minimum, proficiency on challenging state academic achievement standards and state academic assessments.  The basic principals of Title I state that schools with large concentrations of low-income students will receive supplemental funds to assist in meeting the students’ educational goals. Low-income students are determined by the number of students enrolled in the free and reduced lunch program. For an entire school to qualify for Title I funds, at least 40% of students must qualify for free and reduced lunch.(Taken from the Monroe County Schools Federal Programs website at https://www.monroe.k12.tn.us/apps/pages/index.jsp?uREC_ID=1132970&type=d&pREC_ID=1401647 )
