Title I

What is Title I?

Title I is a federally funded grant designed to help schools meet the needs of all students and to provide resources to help improve educational success for families.

Every Title I school has a Family-School Compact and a Parent and Family Engagement School Policy. Title I schools also host events to provide family engagement and involvement opportunities.

More information on the Title I program can be found on the PWCS Title I webpage.
