Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) is designed to help disadvantaged children meet challenging content and student performance standards. Part A of Title I provides financial assistance through State Educational Agencies (SEAs) to Local Education Agencies (LEAs). Funds are distributed to LEA schools with high numbers of children from low-income families, for LEA programs which target individual students most at risk of not meeting the standards, and to local institutions for neglected or delinquent children.

Program Information

Title I supports LEAs in:

  • Improving teaching by promoting effective instruction for at-risk children and for enriched and accelerated programs;
  • Expanding eligibility of schools for school-wide programs that serve all children;
  • Encouraging school-based planning;
  • Establishing accountability based on results;
  • Promoting effective parental participation;
  • Supporting coordination with health and social services agencies;
  • Focusing resources on the schools with the highest percentage of students in poverty.
