Sunset Elementary is a School-wide Title I school. Schools qualify for Federal Title I funds based on the percentage of students who are on Free and Reduced Lunch. The benefits of the funds received at a School-wide Title I school are not targeted to specific students, but can rather be used with all students. The Title I program offers services to students needing extra support in Reading and Math and enriching students with STEM activities. Title I also provides services for families to promote family engagement at Sunset!
