• Title I

    What is Title I?

    Title I is a federally funded program that provides financial assistance to school districts to improve educational opportunities for educationally deprived children.  Title I programs are designed to help children meet the state content and performance standards in language arts and mathematics (Pennsylvania Department of Education, 2022).

    Tawanka Elementary School is a Schoolwide Title I school.  As such, our Title I funds and services can provide comprehensive strategies for improving the entire school so that every student achieves high levels of academic proficiency.
