Title I funding provides financial assistance to schools with a high enrollment of students from economically challenged homes. Funding is used to provide educationally productive programs to ensure all children meet challenging state academic standards.
Springfield Public Schools uses Title I dollars for the purchase of academic supplies and materials in the areas of reading and math, professional development of highly qualified teachers and administrators, and salaries/benefits for specialists and coaches of reading, literacy, and math.
