What is Title I?
Title I is a federally funded program under the No Child Left
Behind Act (NCLB) of 2001. The law, which was signed into
effect on January 8, 2002, amends the Elementary and Secondary Act
of 1965 (ESEA), and replaces the Improving America's Schools Act of
1994. The act contains four basic principles: stronger
accountability for results, increased flexibility and local
control, more choices for parents and students, and an emphasis on
research-based instructional strategies.
The purpose of the Title I program is to help low-achieving
students meet our state's challenging academic content and
performance standards. Schools qualify for Title I funds
based on economic need. The Title I program offers a variety
of services for participating schools, which may include:
additional teachers and support staff, extra time for instruction,
a variety of teaching methods and materials, smaller classes and
additional training for staff. Hunters Creek Elementary is a
school-wide Title I school which means that Title I funds may be
utilized for overall school improvement efforts.
