Mudpie, the formula for determining Title 1 is as follows: 1) school districts are allocated Title 1 funding if the district has at least 10 students or at least 5 percent of the school district's students are poor children. School districts allocate funding to schools based on the schools with the highest concentration of low-income families. Schools then must focus services on student who are failing.
You should direct your question and concern to your principal and to the leadership in the school district. If the district is small (under 7500 students), then the School Superintendent will be helpful and likely assessable. As for choices, this question can best be answered by the District leadership (Superintendent or Assistant Superintendent).
