SVSU Title Funding

What is Title I?

Title I is a federally funded program that provides financial assistance to states and school districts to meet the needs of educationally at risk students beyond the regular classroom.  All of our schools offer schoolwide programs which are available to all students. 

What do Title I programs offer?

Supports offered through Title I include:

  • small group instruction in or outside the classroom to supplement and support practices to increase classroom learning
  • extra time for teaching students the skills they need
  • a variety of teaching methods to reach academic goals
  • additional teaching materials which supplement a student’s regular instruction
  • instructional goals targeted to your student’s needs
  • opportunities for professional learning for school staff


What is Title II? 

Title II funds can be used to provide supplemental activities that strengthen the quality and effectiveness of teachers, principals, and other school leaders. The purpose of Title II is to: 

  • Increase student achievement consistent with state standards
  • Improve the quality and effectiveness of teachers, principals, and other school leaders
  • Increase the number of teachers, principals, and other school leaders who are effective in improving student academic achievement in schools
  • Provide low-income and minority students greater access to effective teachers, principals, and other school leaders


What is Title IV?

The purpose of Title IV  funds is to improve students’ academic achievement by increasing the capacity of the states, local educational agencies, schools, and local communities to:

  • provide all students with access to a well-rounded education
  • improve school conditions for student learning
  • promote the effective use of technology in supporting academic achievement and digital literacy of all students
