In 2015-2016 there were 71 elementary schools listed as Title 1 in Salt Lake County. Let’s help these schools and their students get the extra help they need by donating school supplies in August 2017. Click HERE to make a cash donation via PayPal and have us do the shopping for you, or HERE to sign up to donate supplies and give back in our community. And now we have a link to sign up to deliver backpacks to the schools. Click HERE to sign up to help deliver.
To be an eligible Title I school, at least 40% of a school’s students must be from low-income families who qualify under the United States Census’s definition of low-income, according to the U.S. Department of Education.
As a result of the conditions that often affect families who are poor, these children often fall behind in school and require additional resources to catch up and stay on track.
