Pursuant to federal law, school districts receiving Title I funds to provide educational services to students must do so in accordance with Title I of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001. It is the Board of Education’s intent that Title I funds shall be used efficiently and effectively to benefit the academic opportunities and progress of students in Schoolwide or Targeted Assistance Programs.
Title I funds shall be used to provide educational services that are in addition to the regular services provided for district students. By adoption of this policy, the Board ensures equivalence among schools in teachers, administrators and auxiliary personnel and equivalence in the provision of curriculum materials and supplies.
Title I services in project areas, taken as a whole, shall be at least comparable to services being provided in school attendance areas that are not receiving such funds.
