Title I is the largest federal assistance program for our nation’s schools. The goal of Title I is a high quality education for every child. The program provides funding for extra academic assistance to students who need it most. Currently all Title I schools in our district are in good standing under the Every Students Succeeds Act guidelines and all instructional staff are highly qualified. Parents may request information about the qualifications of teachers and paraprofessionals who instruct their child.
The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) authorizes a Title I school to develop a school-wide program when the free and reduced lunch percentage reaches 40%. A school-wide program allows the school to consolidate federal funds to strengthen the core academic program. All eight MCS Title I schools qualify for and operate as school-wide programs.
The following Murfreesboro City schools currently receive Title I funds:
Black Fox Elementary
Cason Lane Academy
John Pittard Elementary
The Title I Program does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, disability, or age.
