What is Title I?
Title I provides support through resources and research-based training, enabling schools to develop high quality, enriched programs that meet the individual needs of all children, families, and staff. Title I is a federally funded program designed to improve achievement at schools with a high percentage of students eligible for free and reduced priced lunches. To qualify for school-wide program status, a school must meet the criteria of a free and reduced lunch percentage of 65% or higher.
Through Title I funding PBE is able to provide:
o Science and Engineering lab teachers

o Technology and computer programs such as i-Ready and FUSE
o Additional teachers to assist in your child’s learning
