Title I

The Title I, Part A program is designed to help disadvantaged children meet high academic standards by participating in either a school wide or a targeted assistance program. Schoolwide programs are implemented in high-poverty schools following a year of planning with external technical assistance and use Title I funds to upgrade the entire educational program of the school. Targeted assistance programs provide supplementary instruction to children who are failing or most at risk of failing to meet the district's core academic curriculum standards. School-based decision-making, professional development, and parent involvement are important components of each district's Title I, Part A program.

At Saginaw Public Schools, all schools except Handley PCAT,  Saginaw Arts & Sciences Academy, and Saginaw Career Complex receive Title I funds. Funds are also received at the district level.
