Title I Information:

Title I is a federally funded program designed to ensure that all children have an opportunity to access a high-quality education. The goal of this federal program is to close the achievement gap for all students. There are two types of Title I programs: Targeted Assistance School programs and Schoolwide Title I programs.  Phelps Luck has a Schoolwide Title I program. Schools are identified and authorized to implement one of these programs based on the percentage of students receiving free and reduced-price meals (FARMs).  The Schoolwide program allows all students to be eligible for additional academic support. Federal funds are used to support and enhance the overall school program at Phelps Luck Elementary. These Title I funds may be used to upgrade the entire school’s educational program so that the overall education of ALL children who attend the school can be improved.  Currently, all Title I schools in Howard County operate as Schoolwide programs.  For more information about Title I, please visit the HCPSS Title I website. http://www.hcpss.org/academics/title-i-program/
