Welcome to MacArthur Elementary
Learning Today.....Leading Tomorrow

What is Title 1?

Title I is a federally funded program designated to provide instruction for children who need extra academic support. The goals of Title I are to help children succeed in the regular classroom and improve achievement in reading and math. The program provides children the opportunity to acquire the skills needed to meet the highest standards expected of all children. MacArthur is currently receiving Title I dollars to help provide materials and support in the areas of reading and math. This year we plan to use Title I dollars to provide instructional aides in the classroom, tutoring, summer school, academic materials and manipulatives to both students and teachers. 



Title I money is distributed to schools based on the school’s free and reduced lunch count. For every child who qualifies for "Free and Reduced Lunch", the state gives us dollars to ensure all students meet the high and challenging academic standards.  


Even if you feel or know that you would not qualify for “Free and Reduced Lunch”, we would like all families to click here to complete the 2015-2016 Free and Reduced meal application on-line. The more applications that are completed, ensures the chance for MacArthur to receive all Federal Funds available.  One must be completed each school year. Please be aware that you only need to complete one application per family. Return the completed application to MacArthur as soon as possible. All information will be kept confidential.
