Title I is the federal program that provides funding to local school districts to improve the academic achievement of students. Title I funds are allocated to those schools with the highest concentration of low-income families. It is part of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act first passed in 1965.
Each school year Title I schools are determined through a data and reporting process submitted to the Rhode Island Department of Education.

School Wide Program
We have five schools operating the School Wide model. They are Hoxsie, Lippitt, Norwood, Oakland Beach and Scott Elementary Schools. Schools that run a School Wide Program identify the areas in need of increasing student achievement and use the Title I funds for supports and strategies that are beyond what is sustained by the district.
Cameron Kadek, our Title I Family Facilitator, conducts and coordinates parent-child workshops, parent trainings, and guest speakers throughout the year to help foster a love of learning and support classroom education. Program information can be found in the Title I Newsletters or by visiting our Title I Family Programs page via the button below. You can also follow us on Facebook: Warwick Title I Family programs
