The National Title I Distinguished Schools program recognizes exemplary Title I schools that hold students to high standards and demonstrate exemplary school effectiveness in:

• teaching and learning based on the approved state curriculum,

• use of research-based instructional strategies,

• opportunities provided for all students to achieve,

• established partnerships with parents, families, and the community,

• implementation of sustained research-based professional development, and

• innovation and modeling for other schools.

Selected schools are recognized in one of two categories. Schools in Category I are recognized for showing a high level of sustained student achievement. Schools in Category II are recognized for making significant progress in closing the achievement gap between student groups.
