Everyone is making such a fuss over it, what's the big deal?

I've only worked in Title I schools, so I don't know what it's like in any other type of school. I guess I'm no help!

When I worked at a Title 1 school, we received extra funding from the state. If memory serves, it was 200,000 more than the school I am currently at, which is not Title 1. Maybe it is the money?

More money and more paperwork is my understanding. I know my school (not Title I) gets about $20K in discretionary funds. Title I schools in my district have more like $70K.

Title 1 school

We are. You get money from the federal gov. which in turn means paperwork. But we (reg ed ) teachers don't complete it. Title 1 teachers have much of it! But we're all expected to participate in family night activities. We host one per year. Sometimes we bring in an author. Lately it's been science related to correlate STEM, so those are paid for by Title 1 funds.

we have county mandated programs, (iReady computer instruction, and Fast Track Phonics) which must be done on the county schedule for the designated time. There are people designated in the county to monitor our compliance. I hate the everyone march to the same drummer mindset! On the other hand, we also have more staff funded to help with intervention programs, which is a good thing. There's both good and bad with everything. We do get a small extra amount in a bonus once each year for teaching at a Title 1 school, though that is probably determined by the school district in which you teach.

What constitutes a Title 1 School? Are these schools with a high percentage of economically disadvantaged students? TIA

In addition to more federal funding, in Title 1 schools, the Title 1 staff can work with students who are not officially identified as needing Title 1 support. In schools that are not Title 1 schools, but just receive Title 1 funding for the free/reduced percentage of students, the Title 1 staff can only work with students who are identified as needing Title 1 support.

Our free and reduced rates are pretty low, so we do not receive much Title 1 funding, but the other schools in my district do. We applied to become a Title 1 district so the funds the other schools get can be used in my school as well, but we did not qualify. We have more students in our building, and more students needing Title 1 help, but we have the least amount of Title 1 staff because of this.

I know our district received Title 1 funds last year but I didn't think we were a Title 1 school. Last year we hired a Title 1 teacher who worked with children. She was hired as regular staff this year and have not heard of any further Title 1 instruction! Who knows...could just be my goofy district!

Ok, that's a lot!

Definitely sounds like an increase in paperwork but good benefits for the students too. I think it is because of our free and reduced lunch population. We are letting in 30 more students and it's changing our status.

Does the principle have discretion to spend the funds however they see fit? Already I'm thinking of what we could benefit from (iPads, chapter books, copiers, etc)

Are these title one positions good jobs to have?
