Agora Is a Title I School
Agora Cyber Charter School operates a schoolwide Title I program. Schools with a specified percentage of students who meet certain income guidelines are designated as schoolwide programs. Schoolwide programs can combine Title I funds with other federal, state and local funds to improve school programs. As the parent/guardian of a child attending a Title I school, you are an important part of the Title I team. Your input is vital in the planning and implementation of the parent and family engagement program.
What Is Title I?
- “Title I” is short for Title I, Part A (Title I) of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).
- The new law (ESSA) focuses on the clear goal of fully preparing all students for success in college and careers.
- Title I is the largest federally funded program for elementary, middle and high schools.
