What is Title 1?

Title I is the largest federal assistance program for our nation’s schools. The goal of Title I is a higher quality of education for every child. The program serves millions of children in elementary and secondary schools each year. Maude Saunders Elementary School is a Title I school.

How does Title 1 work?

The federal government provides funding to states each year for Title I. The Florida Department of Education sends the money to the district. The school district identifies eligible schools and provides Title I funds. Maude Saunders Elementary School implements a school-wide program, which means all students are served under Title I.
