Title I

  • The Title I program is a federally funded program. This program provides supplemental support to students performing below grade level from kindergarten through twelfth grade.

    Title I funds are allocated to school districts according to poverty data from the U.S. census. School buildings receive their Title I funds according to the percent of students receiving free and reduced lunches. In Kent all elementary schools with 40% or more Free and Reduced (F/R) lunches are schoolwide Title I schools.

    All schoolwide schools are required to write a program building plan. A comprehensive needs assessment is conducted followed by a year long planning process which includes staff, parent and community involvement. School changes are made to address the academic needs of all students and also follow the state-identified achievement standards. The school must review and revise its plan yearly and is subject to the school improvement provisions of Title I.

    Federal Title I funds supplement school funds from non-federal sources. Funds may be blended with other federal state or local funds to upgrade the learning environment. School staff and parents decide how they need to spend these funds according to their Title I building plan. Schoolwide programs must include Parent & Family Engagement and Professional Development.

    In compliance with the requirements of Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) the Kent School District would like to inform you that you may request information about the professional qualifications of your student's teacher(s) or instructional paraprofessional(s). For more information, click here.
