- Title IThis program provides financial assistance to LEAs and schools with high numbers or high percentages of children that are on free/reduced lunch and are non-proficient in either Math or Language Arts, to help ensure that all children meet challenging state academic standards. Federal funds are currently allocated through four statutory formulas that are based primarily on census poverty estimates and the cost of education in each state.Types of Projects:More than 50,000 public schools across the country use Title I funds to provide additional academic support and learning opportunities to help low-achieving children master challenging curriculum and meet state standards in core academic subjects. For example, funds support extra instruction in reading and mathematics, as well as special preschool, after-school, and summer programs to extend and reinforce the regular school curriculum.Additional information:This program provides financial assistance through State educational agencies (SEAs) to local educational agencies (LEAs) and public schools with high numbers or percentages of children who are on free/reduced lunch and are non-proficient in either Math or Language Arts to help ensure that all children meet challenging State academic content and student academic achievement standards.LEAs target the Title I funds they receive to public schools with the highest percentages of children from low-income families. Unless a participating school is operating a schoolwide program, the school must focus Title I services on children who are failing, or most at risk of failing, to meet State academic standards. Schools enrolling at least 40 percent of students from low-income families are eligible to use Title I funds for schoolwide programs that serve all children in the school.Title I is designed to help students served by the program to achieve proficiency on challenging State academic achievement standards. Title I schools with percentages of low income students of at least 40 percent may use Title I funds along with other Federal, State, and local funds, to operate a "schoolwide program" to upgrade the instructional program for the whole school. Title I schools with less than 40 percent low income students or that choose not to operate a schoolwide program offer a "targeted assistance program" in which the school identifies students who are failing, or most at risk of failing, to meet the State's challenging academic achievement standards. Targeted assistance schools design, in consultation with parents, staff, and district staff, an instructional program to meet the needs of those students. Both schoolwide and targeted assistance programs must use instructional strategies based on scientifically based research and implement parental involvement activities.
Topic 1School Choice
- When Schools do not meet State targets for improving the achievement of all students, parents have options, including the option to send their child to another school. Title I, Part A of the Elementary of Secondary Education Act of 1965 as amended by the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, responds to that need by giving parents of students enrolled in Title I schools, that have been identified for school improvement, the opportunity to transfer their children to a public school that has not been so identified.
