Title 1 Authorization

Title I funds are part of the Elementary Secondary Education Act (ESEA) authorization enacted in 1965. Funding provides extensive supplemental services to high poverty schools which support programs that improve and meet high performance and content standards. This policy committed to closing the achievement gap between low-income students and other student. The program is based on a family-centered approach, involving family engagement and education activities as vital components.

When a school is designated to receive Title 1 support, federal funds will be allocated to supplement district funding. The federal funds are specifically intended to provide additional academic and family engagement activities.

Parent Involvement is welcome and encouraged in Lincoln Public Schools and a required component of programming for Title 1 schools. The links below will provide you with information about the Lincoln Public Schools Parent Involvement Policy and a letter to parents from Dr. Linda Hix with specific parent notifications for parents with students attending a Title 1 school.
