Title I in Maryland Schools
Title I, Part A is a federal program that provides financial assistance to local school systems and schools with high percentages of economically challenged children to support the academic achievement of disadvantaged students. All twenty-four local school systems in Maryland receive Title I funds which are distributed to high poverty schools within their districts so the schools can provide additional academic support and learning opportunities to help low-achieving children master challenging curricula and meet state standards in core academic subjects. Title I funds support extra instruction in reading and mathematics, additional teachers, materials of instruction, as well as after-school and summer programs to extend and reinforce the regular school curriculum. There are currently 412 Title I schools in Maryland.
