Meet Title I Goals
Using the Arts
The California Alliance for Arts Education
provides insights for principals.

Bullis Charter School,
Los Altos, California

R

esearch shows that the arts have a measurable
benefit in the lives of students, from academic
achievement to creative problem-solving to
student engagement and perseverance. What's
more, the benefits are disproportionately
higher for students at the greatest risk of
being underserved. For example, in Doing Well and Doing
Good by Doing Art (2012), James Catterall describes that
students in high-poverty schools who have access to the
arts are five times more likely to graduate than those
without, and those same students have much higher rates
of civic engagement than their non-arts-participating peers.
However, many schools still struggle to find ways to support
these important opportunities for students.
Title I is the largest source of federal funding for
education. Its goals are student engagement and
achievement, parent and community engagement,
and school culture/climate-all advanced with a deep
immersion in the arts. Several states and cities have made
an intentional effort to focus Title I resources to increase
art integration as a teaching strategy. Insights from
California are particularly helpful, inspiring school leaders
to use the arts to help accomplish their Title I objectives.

The Arts and
Education Equity
For the past four years, the California Alliance for Arts
Education has been pursuing its Title I Initiative, an effort
to clarify confusion around the appropriate use of Title I
funds for arts education programs, and to provide tools
to school leaders for planning and implementation. For
the alliance, the initiative is not just about finding ways to
provide more access to arts education; it's about providing
a high-quality education for every student. That highquality education must and should include the arts.
Federal Title I funds are dedicated to closing the
achievement gap for the nation's most disadvantaged
students. This is the largest amount of federal education
funds distributed to the states. Title I spending in 2014 was
$14.5 billion overall; every school district receives at least
some Title I funding. Schools with more than 40 percent
low-income students can be designated "whole school"
Title I, and for these schools, Title I funds represent a
potentially powerful supplement to their annual programs.
Whole-school Title I programs have a great deal of
flexibility, and funds can be combined with other federal
and state grants to maximize impact.
