Title 1 Updates
Title I ("Title One") is part of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, as incorporated into the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001.
The Title I program distributes funding to schools with a high percentage of students from low-income families, as determined by the percentage of students eligible for free and reduced-cost meals. Sylmar Charter High School qualifies as a Title I school and receives additional funding on that basis. Without this funding, approximately $1,000,000 in a typical year, Sylmar Charter could have fewer staff members (teachers, assistant principals, counselors, office technicians) and could be unable to make other campus purchases, such as computers.
