Welcome to the Title I program at Jenkins White Elementary School
for the 2020-2021.
Title I, Part A (Title I) of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESEA) provides financial assistance to local educational agencies (LEAs) and schools with high numbers or high percentages of children from low-income families to help ensure that all children meet challenging state academic standards. Title I Schoolwide Program funding is provided directly to eligible schools above the 75 percent poverty threshold. Eligible schools spend the funds allocated based on formalized School Improvement Processes approved by M-DCPS and FDOE.
Title I is the part of ESSA that supports programs in schools and school districts to improve the learning of children from low income families. The Title I Program is committed to helping schools close the achievement gap between disadvantaged and minority students and their peers.
Title I is the largest federally funded education program designed to provide students with additional help in Reading, Language Arts, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies.
