What is Title I?

Title I Schools receive additional supplemental funds through a Title I-A grant from the federal government to provide extra supplementary services for students who attend Title I Schools.  Your children will benefit directly or indirectly from this extra help.  These funds along with other federal resources will be consolidated to support schoolwide positive changes.  Funds can be used to:

  • Hire highly qualified instructional personnel to assist teachers within the classrooms

  • Provide training for staff and teachers

  • Provide supplemental instructional materials and technology

  • Ensure high-quality schoolwide programs

  • Increase parent involvement participation

Mesa Public Schools is pleased to have these funds to provide high quality instruction for all children.
