Title I

  • Proud to be a Title I School

    What is Title I?

    Title I is a federally funded program designed 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 standards and state academic assessments. The Title I program focuses on the academic needs of the most disadvantaged students.

    What is the aim of Title I at Francis C. Hammond?

    We use the federal funds to:

    • Support student instruction
    • Improve teaching strategies
    • Increase family engagement

    Targeted versus Schoolwide Program

    Schools with at least 40% of their students eligible for free and reduced meals are eligible for a schoolwide Title I program. Francis C. Hammond has a free/reduced lunch rate of 80% and operates a schoolwide program.
