What is Title I?



Title I is a federal grant program that provides financial assistance to local educational agencies (LEAs) and schools with high percentages of children from low-income families. The purpose of Title I, Part A of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) of 2015,  is to ensure that all children have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education.​ Title I resources are distributed to schools where needs are the greatest, in amounts sufficient to make a difference in the improvement of instruction. The distribution of Title I funds is based upon the number of students in each school who qualify for free and reduced lunch.


Cherry Creek School District has twelve elementary schools that receive funds for schoolwide programming. Each of these schools has highly trained teachers and instructional coaches to support academic achievement across all content within the school. A schoolwide program is designed to upgrade the entire education program of the Title I school and enables schools to combine Title I funds with other federal, state, and local programs. Title I also provides professional development and training to administrators and teachers in research-based best practices in education.

Family Engagement is a key component of Title I and each school has its own plan and schedule of family events.

With access to the internet comes the availability of material that may not be of educational value or appropriate for students. While at school, CCSD has taken precautions to restrict access to inappropriate or harmful web sites.

CCSD firmly believes that the valuable information and the interaction available on the internet far outweigh the possibility that users may procure material that is not consistent with the educational goals of CCSD.
