Title 1 / Reading Coach

Laurel Wildcats School Wide Title 1 Program

What is Title I?

Title I is the largest federally funded program for elementary and secondary education in the nation. Re-authorized by the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), formerly known as the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, Title I funding helps local school divisions provide equal educational opportunities for low-performing students in schools with economic need. Any school with 40% or more students on free or reduced lunch is eligible for Title I funds. The goal of Title I is to enable all students to be on grade level in reading and mathematics and to meet state and local standards.

What is School Wide Title I?

A school wide program is a comprehensive reform strategy designed to upgrade the entire educational program in a Title I school.  

Its primary goal is to ensure that all students, particularly those who are low-achieving, demonstrate proficient and advanced levels of achievement.

The emphasis in school wide program schools is on serving all students, improving all structures that support student learning, and combining all resources, as allowed, to achieve a common goal. School wide programs maximize the impact of Title I.
