Title I Resources

  • Title I, Part A, the cornerstone of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) of 2015, is the largest federal education program. Its intent is to help ensure that all children have the opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach proficiency in challenging State academic content and performance standards.

    Title I began with the passage of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) of 1965, which provided federal funding for high-poverty schools to help students who are behind academically and at risk of falling behind. Services can include hiring teachers and paraprofessionals, tutoring, purchasing instructional equipment, materials and supplies, parent and family engagement opportunities, professional development, and pre-kindergarten programs.
