Title I, Part A: Improving Basic Programs

Purpose: To close educational achievement gaps and provide all children with a fair, equitable, high-quality education. 

Eligibility: Based on the percentage of students that meet low socio-economic status criteria.

How Can I Use Title I Funds?

SchoolMint’s behavior management platform, SchoolMint Hero, lets you:

  • Reward good behavior while redirecting the bad
  • Create positive, productive classrooms for teachers and students
  • Enforce fair, equitable discipline according to your policies
  • Support SEL as well as RTI systems for tracking tiered interventions
  • Communicate directly with families about the child

Title II: Supporting Effective Instruction

Purpose: To improve teacher and principal quality through recruitment and professional development.

Eligibility: Based on a formula that accounts for the state’s number of school-age children and how many are from low-income families.

How Can I Use Title II Funds?

Title II funds are for supplemental activities that improve the quality of teachers and school leaders.

SchoolMint’s teacher coaching and professional development platform, SchoolMint Grow, lets you:

  • Reduce teacher attrition by offering one-on-one support
  • Improve your teachers’ capabilities via instructional coaching
  • Ensure students of low-income households have access to high-quality teachers
