Title I, Part A 

Title I, Part A is a federal program that serves the unique needs of children  — kindergarten to grade 12 — who struggle to learn. Title I programs and  services provide customized instruction and curricula that helps these students  meet academic standards and take an active, engaged interest in what they learn  and can do. As the oldest and largest federal education program, Title I  programs build equity of opportunity for children whose struggles often keep  them on the academic sidelines.

 

District and School Improvement

-Adequate Yearly Progress(AYP)-sets a standard for accountability, which measures states, schools and districts by the results of state-level tests in 2 main content areas — math and reading. AYP uses this assessment data to measure the academic performance of all students, including subgroups such as children whose families qualify as low-income. The goal — all students reach 100% proficiency math and reading, beginning in 2014.

-Public School Choice(PSC)-Beginning with the first year of improvement schools must offer public school choice - an important provision of the federal Elementary and Secondary School Act (ESEA) that offers families an alternative to keeping their student in a low-performain school.  PSC is a program unique to schools that operate a Title I, part A program.

-Supplemental Education Services (SES)-In step 2 of a school improvement program, the district must offer opportunities for additional instruction -- supplemental educational services -- designed to increase academic achievement. SES are unique to schools that operate a Title I, Part A program, and available to students whose families qualify as low income and who rank as lowest-achieving.
