What is Title I?

Title I is the largest federally funded program in education. It provides financial assistance to local educational agencies for children from low-income families to help ensure that all children meet challenging state academic standards. 

Since East Street Elementary School and Old Country Road Elementary School receive money for Title 1 services, the Hicksville Public School District is required to provide parents with certain information.
