Title I, Part A – Improving the Academic Achievement of Disadvantaged Students

Title I, Part A the cornerstone of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) , previously known as No Child Left Behind (NCLB), 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 on 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 to reduce class size, tutoring, purchase of instructional equipment, materials and supplies, parental engagement activities, professional development, pre-kindergarten programs, and hiring teachers and paraprofessionals.
