What is  Title I?

Arlington ISD Title I programs are designed to accomplish these primary goals:

  • Focus educators on the academic needs of specific student populations
  • Ensure the access of students to effective, scientifically based instructional strategies and challenging academic content to close the academic gap of all students
  • Prepare all students for college and career readiness

Title I Schoolwide programs have a significant student population that are economically disadvantaged (students who qualify for free or reduced meals). Arlington ISD currently has 47 schools that are served as Title I Schoolwide Campuses. The campuses focus on strategies that will directly affect student instruction such as:

  • Interventions
  • Instructional programs
  • Supplemental teachers
  • Professional development for teachers
  • Family engagement activities

All strategies supported with Title I funds are be determined by the campus's Site-Based Decision Making Committee. Needs are prioritized in the campus Comprehensive Needs Assessment and strategies are developed and included in the Campus Improvement Plan.

Students benefiting from Title I strategies include:

  • Migrant students
  • Students with limited English proficiency
  • Homeless students
  • Students with disabilities
  • At-risk students
  • Any student in academic need
