Title I Part A provides formula grants to school districts which allocate most of the funds to individual Title I schools based on their number of economically disadvantaged students. Funds in Tipton County are used for Schoolwide Programs. Schoolwide Programs work to raise the achievement of low achieving students by improving instruction throughout the entire school, thus using Title I funds to serve all children. Title I funds may be used for a variety of services and activities but are most commonly for instruction in reading and mathematics.Title II Part A
Title II Part A provides grants to school districts through the state in order to increase student academic achievement through strategies such as improving teacher and principal quality and increasing the number of highly qualified teachers in the classroom. The majority of the funds are used to prepare, train and recruit highly qualified teachers.
