What is Title I?

Title I is a federally funded program under the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) of 2015. The purpose of Title I is to provide funding to schools and school districts with a high percentage of students from low-income families. To qualify as a Title I school, a school typically has 40% or more of its students qualifying for free or reduced lunch. Students do not have to be from low-income families to receive Title I services.
Generally speaking, Title I may offer smaller class sizes, additional teachers and paraprofessionals, opportunities for professional development for staff, and additional instructional resources.
*To learn more about the Title I program at St. Simons Elementary please see our Title I Brochure 2020-21.
The instructional program at St. Simons Elementary is designed to provide a supportive learning environment and high-quality curriculum for every student. A strong school-family partnership is a critical link to creating an environment in which students can reach high standards and expectations. Our Student Parent Compact is a written agreement of shared responsibility.
