Title I

Title I is a federal program that provides additional funding to schools for academic support. Generally, Title I programs offer:

  • Additional teachers and assistants.
  • Additional training for school staff.
  • Extra time for instruction.
  • A variety of teaching methods and materials.

These valuable funds are dependent on help from our families. Title I funds are distributed to schools based on the percentage of students enrolled in the Free and Reduced-Price Meals Program. Please take time to apply for the Free and Reduced-Price Meals program. Not only can this federal program assist with the cost of school meals, it greatly assists our school with additional support for instruction. Even if your family qualifies for the program you can choose not to participate yet will still help our school maintain our Title I status.

How does Title I funding help Hamlin? Hamlin is a school-wide Title I program so every student can benefit from Title I funding and services. With Hamlin’s Title I funds we are able to provide the following:
