Economically Disadvantaged (Title I)

Since 1965, Congress has funded services for struggling students, who live in poverty. Poverty levels are determined by the number of students who qualify for free or reduced-priced lunches and U.S. Census data. Services are coordinated through a federal program called Title I. 

In the Nampa School District every school qualifies for and receives Title I funds. Title I funds are used to provide for additional teachers and assistants and for training and materials with the goal of improving student reading and math skills.

If you have a child in our schools and would like to apply for free or reduced price lunch, please contact our Nutrition Program at 468-4600 and ask for an application. You may also be able to pick up a form from the nutrition staff at your child’s school.

Our Title I programs are based in our schools and are coordinated by our Students Services Heidi Rahn. She may be reached at (208) 468-4601
