Title I is a compensatory education program supported by funds from the U.S. Department of Education. The purpose of Title I is to enable schools to provide opportunities for children to acquire the knowledge and skills described in the state content standards and to meet the state performance standards for all students. In 1999-2000, Title I provided funding to 50 schools in the Austin Independent School District (44 elementary school campuses, 5 middle schools, and 1 high school) with 60% or more students from low-income families. The 1999-2000 budget allocation for AISD under Title I, Part A funding was $13,049,773, which included some roll-forward funds from the previous year. A total of 32,497 students were served through various Title I programs. These AISD programs were funded through Title I: (1) schoolwide programs for schools where 50% of students were low-income; (2) prekindergarten; (3) the Summer Opportunity To Accelerate Reading (S.O.A.R.) program to improve literacy and reading for at-risk students; (4) year-round schools; (5) Title I summer programs for enrichment and remediation; (6) parent and community involvement; and (7) Title I migrant programs for at-risk migrant students. Activities are outlined and funding is described for each of these programs.
