Title I Schools

  • Title I Schools

    In Saint Paul, to be designated as a Title I school, a school must have a concentration percentage of free and reduced lunch eligible students of 40% or more based on the previous year's October 1 Count. Concentration is calculated by assigning .5 per eligible student for reduced priced lunches and 1.0 per eligible student for free lunch. That total is divided by the total number of students enrolled in the school on October 1st (.5*R + 1.0*F)/total enrollment. 

    Most schools in Saint Paul use Title I funding in a schoolwide model. In a schoolwide model, the school uses the Title I funding across the whole school, supporting and supplementing state and local funds to improve the education of historically disadvantaged students. Title I funding must always supplement and never supplant the regular education program at a school.

    A percentage of the Title I funds at a school are used to support parents in their involvement of their children's education. Schools provide opportunities for parents to learn how to support their children in their school work, to be involved at the school through volunteering and decision making opportunities and they assist parents by removing barriers to being involved.
