Annual Title I Data Collection

In accordance with federal Title I reporting requirements, the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) is required to collect data from districts receiving Title I funds each year. Districts must report data at the district and school level:

  • For the district as a whole, information on the number of private school students who received Title I services in FY19, and, for certain districts, the number of students in local neglected programs who received Title I services in FY19;

  • For each Title I school, information on the provision of certain Title I requirements that apply to individual schools, such as parent/guardian notifications, intervention services, and actions taken as a result of each school's accountability determination (if applicable).

District personnel with the Title I Grant Application and Amendments Drop Box security role can access the application. The Directory Administrator in your district assigns this role. A list of Directory Administrators in each district is available.

Submission Deadline

The deadline for submitting Title I data via the Security Portal is Friday, June 28, 2019. Districts that fail to meet this deadline may be subject to withholding of Title I grant payments.

Thank you in advance for your assistance and cooperation in providing these important data to DESE. If you have any questions about the Title I data collection process, please contact us at
