The intent of Title I is to narrow the education gap that exists between middle and low-income children by providing extra resources to help improve instruction in high-poverty schools.
Title I Resources include:
McKinney-Vento Homeless Program
The McKinney-Vento Act ensures that children experiencing homelessness have access to the same free, appropriate public education and related services as their permanently housed peers so that they have an equal opportunity to meet the same challenging academic standards.
McKinney-Vento Homeless Program Resources include:
- National Association for the Education of Homeless Children and Youth
- Education for Homeless Children and Youth Program
There are multiple discretionary grants within the Gallup-McKinley County School District.

Title VI- Indian and Alaska Native Formula Grant
The Office of Indian Education (OIE), located in the Office of the Under Secretary (OUS), was created in 1972 under the Indian Education Act. The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) of 2015 amends the Indian education programs in OIE as Title VI, Part A of Elementary and Secondary Education Act. The Federal legislation focuses on the education of American Indians, Alaska Natives and Native Hawaiians for preschool to graduate school.
Title VI is designed to ensure that American Indian, Native Hawaiian and Alaska Native students meet challenging state academic content and student academic achievement standards, as well as meet the unique culturally related needs.
