What is Title I?

Title I, Part A is a federal program designed “To provide all children significant opportunity to receive a fair, equitable, and high-quality education, and to close educational achievement gaps.” Title I, Part A can support early learning and Kindergarten to grade 12. Title I, Part A programs and services provide customized instruction and curricula that helps these students meet academic standards and take an active, engaged interest in what they learn and can do. As the oldest and largest federal education program, Title I, Part A programs build equity of opportunity for children whose struggles often keep them on the academic sidelines. One-third of the public schools in Washington State operate Title I, Part A programs, providing academic services to over 350,000 students annually.

This five minute video guide is a companion to the What is Title I, Part A? brochure. LEAs and schools can use this video guide at open houses, parent-teacher conferences, and the Title I, Part A meetings.

It is a good complement to parent and family engagement activities where the LEA and school wants to showcase the programs available in their school system.
