What is Title I

  • Provides federal funding to economically disadvantaged schools.
  • A disadvantaged school is defined as one falling below the community’s poverty line.
  • The poverty line is determined by the average number of free and reduced lunches served at each school in the district.
1965- Began as part of the Great Society Program of President Lyndon B. Johnson.
  • This Law was called ESEA or the Elementary and Secondary Education Act.
  • Intent was to provide services to students who had needs that were not being addressed in other programming- not handicapped but not working on grade level.
  • Services focused on all grades: K-12.
  • Has been known as Title I and Chapter I.
  • In 2001 it became known as No Child Left Behind.
  • Currently the Common Core Curriculum, assessments and new benchmark achievement levels are tied into ESEA funds.
