About Title I
Title I in Richfield Public Schools
In Richfield, all four elementary schools and Richfield Middle School use Title 1 funding in a schoolwide model. In a schoolwide model, the school uses the Title 1 funding across the whole school, supporting and supplementing state and local funds to improve the education of historically underserved students. Title 1 funding must always supplement and never supplant the regular education program at school.
A percentage of the Title 1 funds at a school are used to support parents in their involvement of their children’s education. Schools provide opportunities for parents to learn how to support their children in their school work, to be involved at the school through volunteering and decision making opportunities and they assist parents by removing barriers to be involved.
