What is Title 1?
Title I programs are federally funded instruction that is in addition to core reading and math classes for students who are struggling to meet the state standards. The federal government gives funds to South Carolina through the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) to divide among school districts based on their percentage of low-income families and participating schools. C. A. Johnson High School uses its Title I funds for students to operate supplemental programs in reading and math.
Title I coordinates services with other educational services and, to the degree possible, with health and social services programs. Title I provides greater decision-making authority and flexibility within the schools for teachers, requiring greater responsibility for student performance.
