Title I, Part A Overview

  • What Is Title I, Part A?

    Since 1965 and the passage of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act and the newly adopted Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), Title I provides a source of federal funding to America’s schools. Based on local poverty data and demographics, Title I formulas determine the funding allocation allowing schools to provide supplemental instructional services and resources to assist students in achieving local learning goals and targets.

    There are two models of Title I services, targeted assistance and school-wide, allowed under the 2001 No Child Left Behind Act. Schools are eligible to implement supplemental instructional services as targeted programs. Ensuring all students in the school, primarily those who are at-risk, satisfy expected achievement levels on local and state measures, remain the goal of school-wide programming.

    School-wide implementation under Title I require schools complete a comprehensive needs assessment, design specific goals and interventions to respond to the needs, develop a comprehensive plan and conduct an annual review of the program.
