Title I Schools
What are Title I Schools?
Title I Schools are defined as schools where “low-income families make up at least 40 percent of enrollment” according to the U.S. Department of Education. Therefore, it is difficult for many students at Title I Schools to obtain the resources they need. For instance, paying for a $500 working instrument is not a priority for some of these families.
