Title I, Part A is a formula grant program that provides financial assistance to local educational agencies (LEAs) and schools with high numbers or high percentages of children from low-income families. Formula grant programs are noncompetitive awards based on a predetermined formula. Title I is the largest program supporting elementary and secondary education in the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) .
The Title I, Part A program is intended to help ensure that all children meet challenging state academic standards, regardless of economic status. Title I is the government’s attempt to provide all children with the opportunity to receive a fair, equitable and high-quality education, and to close the achievement gap.
ESSA divides Title I into five parts:
- Improving Basic Programs Operated by LEAs
- State Assessment Grants
- Education of Migratory Children
- Prevention and Intervention Programs of Children & Youth that are Neglected, Delinquent or At-Risk
- Flexibility for Equitable Per Pupil Funding
