Title One is a federally funded program designed to help schools provide supplemental services to struggling students. Title One programs at PBL provide assistance to improve the teaching and learning of children to enable them to meet challenging State academic content and performance standards. Title One provides a focus on school wide reform efforts, parent involvement, professional development, and standards and assessments.
PBL Clara Peterson and PBL Eastlawn schools are both considered Title One, school-wide schools. Schools with school-wide programs use Title I funds to implement comprehensive strategies for improving the educational program of the whole school in schools with 40% or more poverty to increase the achievement of all students, particularly at-risk students.
