ACSIPA's Guide to Title 1

Title One Support

Title I and others are funds that are to flow from federal funding through the states to local private school students. There are lots of ways this can and does happen. We are committed to helping schools take advantage of the tax dollars that are allocated for your students. Use some of the resources below as a help.
