About Title I

  • Benavidez Elementary is a schoolwide Title I, Part A campus.  Title I, Part A, is a federal funded program that provides resources and opportunities to improve the academic achievement of economically disadvantaged students.  The purpose of Title I, part A is to ensure that all children have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach, at a minimum, proficiency on challenging state academic achievement standards and state academic assessments. A school is eligible to receive Title I, Part A funds when the percentage of low-income children residing within a school's attendance area is equal to or greater than the average district-wide percentage.
