• Title 1-A: College and Career Ready Students

    Title I-A of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), as amended by the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB), provides LEAs with extra resources to help improve instruction in high-poverty schools and to ensure that children from low-income families and minority children have the same opportunity as other children to meet challenging State academic standards. NCLB incorporates major education reforms, particularly in the areas of assessment, accountability and school improvement. The law requires States to develop standards in reading and math, and to develop on-grade level assessments linked to those standards for all students in grades 3–8, and one grade level in high school. LEAs must use Title I-A funds for activities that are based on scientifically-based research, which means they have been proven effective in helping students meet these State standards.

    Program Purposes

    • Supports schools and LEAs in providing high quality opportunities for students in high poverty schools to meet challenging State content and performance standards.
    • Promotes extending learning time in accelerated rather than remedial classes through new provisions.
    • Expands eligibility for schools to operate Schoolwide Programs that serve all children in high poverty schools.
    • Supports achievement of effective transitions: preschool to school, and school to work.
    • Establishes accountability based on results, drawing data from the Statewide assessments and reducing duplicate testing.
    • Increases effective parental participation.
    • Assures fair and equitable participation of private school students.
    • Supports coordination with health and social services.
    • Assures highly qualified staff.
