Edison Title 1 Family Resources

What is Title 1?

Title I is the largest federally funded program for elementary, middle, and high schools. Title I helps students, teachers, and parents!


Through Title I, money is given to school districts around the country based on the number of low-income families in each district. Each district uses its Title I money for extra educational services for children most in need of educational help. The focus of the Title I program is on helping these students meet the same high standards expected of all children.


Title 1 programs can help:


  • Children do better in school and feel better about themselves
  • Teachers understand the needs and concerns of students and parents
  • Parents understand their child and be more engaged in the child’s education
