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

Published: 6/7/2017 9:36 AM

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.

Additional notifications from the U.S. Department of Education in regards to Title I, Part A can be found on the notifications website.

New! Registration for summer 2017 training sessions for Title I, Part A Coordinators is now open. The Summer Training Flier contains more information.
