Title I

Title I is a federal grant program that provides financial assistance to schools in an effort to provide all children with a fair and equal opportunity to a high-quality education. Title I funds are earmarked for academically at-risk students to assist them in achieving the state’s academic standards. In accepting these federal funds, the Roselle School District agrees to comply with all state and federal requirements related to the development, implementation, and evaluation of federally funded compensatory education programs such as the Title I program.
Roselle’s Title I program funds the salaries of additional teachers and instructional coaches who provide academic support in general education classrooms. Title I funds are also used for a number of before and after school tutorial programs, a summer enrichment program, and various Family Resource Night events. Furthermore, the Supervisor of ESSA/Title I holds an annual parent meeting to discuss Title I initiatives and works collaboratively with parents to assess and modify the program as needed.
The Roselle Public School District utilizes its Title I funds through Schoolwide programs at seven of its schools: The Kindergarten Success Academy, its three elementary schools (Harrison, Polk, & Washington), Leonard V. Moore Middle School, Grace Wilday Junior High School, and Abraham Clark High School. The Schoolwide designation means that all of the students at those schools are eligible for Title I services if needed.
