• Title I Supplemental Educational Services

    Title I, Part A of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, as amended recently as the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), provides funding to school districts with high numbers of children from low-income families. The added federal funding helps to ensure that all students are learning and meeting state-level academic standards.

    Title I is important because it provides students significant opportunity to receive a fair, equitable, high-quality education that, in turn, helps to close educational achievement gaps.

    Program Elements

    • needs assessment and program plan design
    • parent involvement
    • services to students enrolled in private schools
    • high-quality teachers and para-educators
    • coordination of services for homeless students in non-Title I schools
    • support for Title I focus and priority schools
    • comparability
