Title I is a federal program that provides funds to supplement educational services in schools with higher percentages of students receiving Free or Reduced Price Lunch assistance. The purpose of the program is to ensure that students in these schools have access to a high-quality education.
The mission of Title l in District 622 is to help struggling students develop the skills and confidence they need to fully access classroom instruction and achieve academic success. District 622 has elected to serve its qualified elementary schools with Title I. All seven of our elementary schools receive Title I funds.
All of District 622's Title I schools are Schoolwide Title I (SWP) programs. Schoolwide programs are Title I schools with Education Benefits rates greater than 40% that design and implement a school reform plan aimed at improving overall education, while still focusing on students at risk of not meeting standards.
SWP status allows schools more flexibility in using Title I funds. For example, SWP staff funded by Title I can work with any student within the school.
District 622 Schoolwide Title I Schools for 2023-2024
As of 23-24, one school in ISD 622 qualified as a Targeted Assistance program. TA is a supplemental program provided during the regular school day to raise the achievement level of students most at risk of not meeting academic standards. Title I funds are used to provide additional support for students while also increasing opportunities for parents’ involvement in their student’s education. In this program, staff funded through Title I are only allowed to work with students identified as meeting the criteria. This differs from a Schoolwide Program, where all students may receive additional support.
