Titulo I

El Título I, Parte A de la Ley de Educación Primaria y Secundaria, una ley federal, proporciona fondos a las escuelas con un alto número o un alto porcentaje de estudiantes de familias de bajos ingresos. Los estudiantes en viviendas temporales son categóricamente elegibles para los servicios bajo el Título I, incluso si no asisten a una escuela de Título I o no cumplen con los estándares académicos requeridos de otros niños para ser elegibles. Además, los distritos escolares y las escuelas autónomas que reciben fondos del Título I deben reservar una parte de los fondos para satisfacer las necesidades únicas de los estudiantes en viviendas temporales.
