Title 1

Title I is a federal education program under the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001. This program provides financial assistance to school districts and schools with high numbers or high percentages of poor children to help ensure that all children meet challenging state academic standards.

Title I supports districts in providing high-quality opportunities for students in high poverty schools to meet the same challenging State content and performance standards by:

  • Promoting extended learning time in accelerated rather than remedial classes
  • Expanding eligibility for schools to operate Schoolwide programs that serve all children in high poverty schools.
  • Supporting achievement of effective transitions from preschool to kindergarten
  • Establishing accountability based on state and local assessment results

Who is eligible to receive Title I services?

All students in schools that operate Schoolwide programs are eligible to receive services.  Students in Targeted Assistance Schools are selected to receive services based on academic achievement indicators.

Are preschool programs available through Title I?

Providing high-quality early childhood experiences can help ensure that children have the foundation to meet academic standards and experience success throughout elementary and secondary school.  Roseburg Public Schools offers a Title I preschool program for pre-school aged children who meet the qualification criteria.  For more information, contact Tatum Stedman, the Title I preschool program coordinator.  She can be reached by calling Roseburg Public Schools district office at 541-440-4005.
