“Foster [Elementary] is a Title I school… the majority of our students don’t have the tools or money, so [Villa Musica] is helping us level that playing field because our kids are getting access to the same things as the other kids in the neighborhood” – Principal Leah Saunders

Title I Schools†

What is a Title I School?

The Title I program is a federally funded program authorized under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) of 1965, now recognized as the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). The State Educational Agency (SEA) awards grants to geographically diverse local educational agencies (LEAs) with the purpose to ensure all children have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach minimum proficiency.
