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 Office of Curriculum and Instructional Programs and reports to the Chief Academic Officer.
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.
Our mission is to promote school readiness, academic achievement, and wellness, by providing customized, comprehensive support through collaboration and advocacy with schools, families, community partnerships, and stakeholders to ensure access to equitable high quality learning opportunities and resources for all students.
We will foster all students' success by removing barriers to educational access and empowering our Early Childhood and Title I communities to reach their highest potential.
