Title I, Part A – Improving Academic Achievement of the Disadvantaged

Published: 9/10/2014 12:08 PM

Title I, Part A is one of the many federal programs in the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001. Title I, Part A provides formula grants to districts. Districts then allocate funds to Title I schools based on their number of low-income children.

The district must use Title I funds only in schools that have been selected for services through allowable procedures. Funds are used to improve student achievement in high poverty schools. The Title I, Part A Handbook contains comprehensive information about all Title I requirements for districts and schools.

For assistance regarding Title I, please contact any of the federal programs staff by phone at (502) 564-3791 or by email (click names): Sharma AitkenChristina Benassi, Claude Christian, Daniel Davison, Vicki Fosbender, Helen Jones, Judith Littleton, Julie Lovely, Mary Marshall, Zack MarinelliDavid Millanti, Monica Murphy, Heather RhorerMonica Shack, Donna Tackett, or Neil Watts.​​
