Supplement, not Supplant
Funds made available under this part shall be used to supplement, and not supplant, any other federal, state, or local education funds. An LEA may use Title I funds only to supplement and, to the extent practical, increase the level of funds that would, in the absence of Title I funds, be made available from non-federal sources for the education of students participating in Title I programs. In no case may Title I funds be used to supplant or take the place of funds from non-federal sources.
