• TITLE I : 2018-19
     
    Title I funds are provided to schools with large numbers of Economically-Disadvantaged students (ED). Based on the needs of their student subgroups, Title I schools design instructional programs and provide student services to supplement existing programs that are financed through local, state, and other federal funds.
     
    These additional funds are used to design strategies that meet the needs of students that are most at risk for school failure. Services may include implementing effective instructional practices , hiring teachers to reduce class size, purchasing materials and supplies, and hiring additional teacher assistants or other personnel.
     
    A school that is designated as a schoolwide Title I school has 40% or more of its student population receiving Free or Reduced Lunches. Eleven Duplin County schools are currently Title I Schools:
