Title I Families … What does it mean?

  • Title I, Part A: Improving Academic Achievement of Disadvantaged Students, federal grant is a supplemental fund distributed throughout the country. The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) distributes a share throughout the public school districts within the states based on a 40% low income enrollment threshold. Title I funds are to be used towards extra student academic support. 

    Title I Schoolwide Program (TISP) focuses on reading, math and/or language arts and is designed to supplement services to every student using a variety of models. Being part of a TISP means that the school your child(ren) attends receives supplementary federal funding for academic curriculum support.  

    It is our goal to provide the best quality support to our Framingham Public School students. With Title I funding, our district has budgeted funding towards:

    • Hiring new teachers, social-emotional staff, and support staff
    • Supplemental educational field trips
    • Additional teaching materials, including technology, to supplement students' daily instructions 
    • Variety of supplementary high quality professional development
    • Special instructional classes
