Title 1 Program
Information about the Title I Program in Cecil County Public Schools
Title I is a federal program intended to help ensure that all children have the opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach proficiency on challenging state academic standards and assessments. Title I targets resources to schools where the needs are greatest. High-poverty elementary schools (those with 51% or more students from low-income families) are eligible to adopt school-wide programs to raise the achievement of low-achieving students by improving instruction throughout the entire school, thus using Title I funds to serve all children. The Title I office has the responsibility of overseeing these programs in school-wide schools. There are eight school-wide Title I schools and one Targeted Assistance Title I school in Cecil County. They are: Bainbridge Elementary, Bay View Elementary, Cecil Manor Elementary, Elkton Middle School (Targeted Assistance), Gilpin Manor Elementary, Holly Hall Elementary, North East Elementary, Perryville Elementary and Thomson Estates Elementary.
