The Title I law requires local education agencies with total enrollment of 1,000 students or more and having more than one attendance area, to rank schools based on the percentage of poverty and allocated funds to eligible buildings according to the number of low income students in each building. This process is referred to as targeting.
In order to be eligible for a Title I building allocation, a school must be at or above the district poverty percent. Schools below the district percent are not eligible for Title I funding.
The following districts in North Dakota are required to do the targeting process:
- Devils Lake
- Grand Forks
- West Fargo
