Title I, Part A, of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), provides financial assistance to local educational agencies (LEAs) and schools with high numbers of children from low-income families. The purpose of this title is to ensure that all children have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach, at a minimum, proficiency on challenging state academic standards and state academic assessments. Title I, Part A program is designed to help disadvantaged children meet high academic standards by participating in the schoolwide program. Schoolwide programs are implemented in high-poverty schools following a year of planning with external technical assistance and use Title I funds to upgrade the entire educational program of the school. School-based decision-making, professional development, and parent involvement are important components of our district’s Title I, Part A program. The transition to the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) provided the opportunity for the Arizona Department of Education (ADE) to transform how it supports schools and Local Education Agencies (LEAs), through creating a state plan that reflects a shared statewide vision for Arizona's students and schools on topics such as accountability, funding, school improvement and grant-making systems.
Help students achieve the state’s academic standards. This is accomplished through supplemental programs that consist of instructional services, instructional support services, school-wide reform efforts, and increased involvement of parents in their children’s education.
Title I services are offered at the following schools:
