Title I is the largest federal education program which provides financial assistance to states and local educational agencies. In 2001, this federal legislation was reauthorized as "No Child Left Behind (NCLB)." District data and stakeholder input guide initiatives that meet specific requirements of the law as well as focus resources on district needs and goals.
The purpose of Title I is to ensure that all children have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach, at a minimum, proficiency on state academic achievement standards and state academic assessments.
Specific state supplemental program resources are managed in collaboration to maximize efforts for at-risk students, reading and literacy initiatives, enhancement activities, and professional development.
