Title I Programs

In Montgomery County Public Schools, Title I is one of the grants supervised by the Division of Early Childhood and Title I Programs, and Recovery Funds (DECTIRF). This division is a part of School Support and Improvement and reports to the Chief of Teaching, Learning, and Schools.

Title I is charged with implementing Title I, Part A under the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) of 2015, and serves as a catalyst to connect programs and assist with systematic school improvement. These improvement efforts call for self-evaluation, strategic planning, and effective use of evidence-based practices and resources to increase student performance and close the achievement gap.
