The Title I Program is committed to helping schools close the achievement gap between disadvantaged and minority students and their peers. This site is designed to supply users with information relevant to Title I in order to provide a clear understanding of the overall program. Title I funding flows from the U.S. Department of Education (as appropriated by Congress) to the Florida Department of Education (FDOE), which then allocates funds to Miami-Dade County Public Schools (M-DCPS). The District adheres to Federal ESSA law mandates to ensure that Title I Schoolwide Program funding is provided directlyto eligible schools above the 75 percent poverty threshold. Eligible schools spend the funds allocated based on formalized School Improvement Processes approved by M-DCPS and FDOE.
