WHAT IS TITLE I?
Title I is the largest federally funded program for elementary and secondary education in the nation. Re-authorized by the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), formerly known as the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, Title I funding helps local school divisions provide equal educational opportunities for low-performing students in schools with economic needs. The goal of Title I is to enable all students to be on grade level in reading and mathematics and to meet state and local standards.

IXL is a web-based program that targets MATH for all grades K-12 with problems based on the common core standards. The math problems have a wide variety of question types, from word problems to interactive graphing. A great feature IXL provides is if a child gets the wrong answer, IXL explains why. Students can also choose to watch a video explanation for the problem using different numbers. IXL provides insightful reporting that tracks student progress which helps the teacher provide immediate feedback to students in need.
IXL is not just about helping your kids learn math, it's also about helping them enjoy learning. That means encouraging them to have fun! IXL makes learning fun. Students would much rather be playing on the computer, so let them! Thanks to vibrant images, colorful illustrations, and meaningful content at every turn, learning has never been just so much fun. One of the ways IXL makes learning fun is through hundreds of virtual awards that reflect kids' favorite animals, foods, places, and hobbies. On IXL math, each grade level has its own themed game board, filled with hidden prizes, so practicing math is like one big treasure hunt.
