Title I Program

The Title I program is a federally funded program authorized under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) of 1965 as reauthorized by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). The State Educational Agency (SEA) shall award grants to geographically diverse local educational agencies (LEAs). In making such awards, the SEA shall prioritize awards to LEAs serving the highest percentage of schools identified by the State for comprehensive support and improvement or implementing targeted support and improvement plans. The purpose is to ensure all children have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach minimum proficiency.


Together we can make a positive difference in the life of each student in the Del Norte Unified School District. We want our families and students to have access to knowledge and information about student learning and about our school system. By building cross-cultural networks in our outreach and many school activities, we hope to foster family-teacher relationships and parent-parent relationships.

What sets Del Norte Unified and its community partners apart from others is what drives us — that we can achieve great things when we work to connect children to school. By providing educational options that are interactive, integrated, and innovative, both in and out of the classroom, we keep students interested and engaged.

We know learning starts at home and continues at school and we believe when families play an active role in their child’s education, students will succeed. When families who, regardless of their racial or ethnic identity, educational background, gender, disability, or socioeconomic status, are willing to work together with their child’s school or district, partnerships will flourish and we will raise students who are college and career ready graduates.
