Title I Funding
Many schools attending newspapers2 have been funded by their local school Title I account because:
- newspapers2 is a writing workshop and
- what students do at the four-day workshop aids and enhances the total student body experience through written communication in the school newspaper. See your local Title I site coordinator for access and availability to Title I funding. Especially at the end of the year when unused funds might become available.
