Title I is the nation’s largest federally funded pre-college education program. It is the cornerstone program of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, providing more than $19 billion to the nation’s school districts to supplement the education of disadvantaged children. Title I funds pay for curriculum materials, professional development services, resources to increase family involvement and many other educational purchases. (Read more about Excel Math Professional Development here: cost effective, targeted, professional and informative.)
Excel Math has been effectively used in Title I programs (both as a supplement and in a core position) for years. The Excel Math lessons give teachers the resources they need to help every child succeed and achieve (at high levels) in elementary mathematics.
Here's what one principal told us recently about how well Excel Math worked in his school:
“We wanted to let you know that Robbinsville Elementary school was awarded the title School of Distinction during the 2011-2012 school year. We were recognized, in large part, as a result of high math scores—96 percent of 4th graders passed the state end of grade exam! Thanks to Excel Math for helping our students succeed in math."
— Shane Laughter, Principal, Robbinsville Elementary School

One of the great benefits of Excel Math is that it is continually enhanced. We print Excel Math throughout the year so you will always have the latest lesson sheets, unlike textbooks, which are static until you buy a new book.
Excel Math is fully aligned to the Common Core Standards (CCS). Visit our website to view and download correlations by grade level: www.excelmath.com/downloads/state_stds.html
The following chart shows how the new Common Core Standards progress through the grade levels. Another benefit of using Excel Math is that we begin preparing students for fractions and probability in second grade. We don't wait until sixth grade (or even third). Lessons become more rigorous over the years as students develop proficiency with concepts introduced in the early grades. As a result, students have a strong foundation for Common Core Standards. Students develop proficiency in mathematics at all grade levels. Click here to download the chart. Excel Math is available for Kindergarten through Grade 6.

Or, even better (and my personal favorite) . . . try some chocolate! Bob assured me it's really good chocolate.
