Title I Program (ESEA)

  • General Program Information
    Title I is the largest federal aid program for public schools.  This program provides additional funds for educating disadvantaged or underserved children.  These funds are specifically designated to assist children in meeting the Arizona College and Career Ready Standards.
    Goal:  Title I is the federal government's commitment to closing the achievement gap between low-income and moderate-to-high-income students.  Chandler Unified School District's goal is to assist disadvantaged and underserved students to meet the Arizona College and Career Ready Standards. 
    Each school within a district is designated as a Title I school if certain criteria are met.  If criteria are met, then a Title I school is provided with additional funding.  This funding can be used to:
    • Provide intervention reading and mathematics programs.
    • Provide before school, after school, or intersession programs.
    • Hire highly qualified certified staff, such as reading specialists or instructional coaches
    • Hire highly qualified support staff, such as paraprofessionals or parent liaisons.
    • Support family engagement by providing site parent liaisons and family resource centers.
    • Provide professional development for families, teachers, and support staff.
    • Purchase supplemental instructional supplies and materials.
