What can you do with your Title I funds?

Note: Based on a Network article by Pat Forbes

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) is paving the way for students everywhere to find success in life, whether that be in college, a career, or both. And Title I grants are a great way to employ the essence of ESSA. Schools with a 40 percent or higher population of low-income students are eligible for the funds.

What does that mean for students? Well, it could mean access to a host of engaging, hands-on STEM products and activities, as a large variety of Pitsco Education curriculum products can be attained using Title I funds.

The TETRIX® building system, for example, can include or be part of robotics sets, project kits, and activities and curriculum for middle school and lower-division high school students. And Title I grants support the real-world problem-solving inherent in these and other Pitsco products.

Regardless of language barriers or socioeconomic disadvantages, students can still experience success in the classroom – and beyond – with the help of Pitsco, ESSA, and Title I funding.

And for even more great funding, check out the following opportunities.

Hello! I work as a communications assistant here at Pitsco, editing, writing, helping with publications, and working with other departments to help create awesome STEM materials and resources. I learned my love of storytelling from my dad, who constantly entertained me and my 11 siblings with the most fascinating, albeit fictional, stories. His tales kept us out of our mother’s hair for a while and probably saved her sanity. Our blog posts aren’t fictional, of course, but I still enjoy infusing the same amount of fun that Dad put into his stories. I hope reading these posts brings you equal enjoyment.
