• Title I Supplemental Educational Services

    Overview
    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 with a significant opportunity to receive a fair, equitable, high-quality education that, in turn, helps to close educational achievement gaps.

    Program Elements include:

    • 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


    In Nashua, Title I funds are used in eligible schools to provide in-school reading and math support, preschool experiences, and educational supplies and materials.
