Title I, Part A-Improving Basic Programs PDF Print

PURPOSE: Under the recent legislation of No Child Left Behind (NCLB), Title I, Part A is to support high poverty schools in providing opportunities for children to acquire the knowledge and skills in the State content standards and to meet the challenging State performance standards developed for all children. Title I, Part A supports schools in implementing either a school-wide program or a targeted assistance program. These programs must use effective methods and instructional strategies that are grounded in scientifically based research. In addition to serving students in public schools, districts are obliged to serve students who would be eligible in the public school, but are attending non-public schools. Districts must also serve students in the facilities for Neglected and Delinquent children with Title I funds.
