Title I Program
Title I, Economic Impact Aid-State Compensatory Education (EIA-SCE)
The Title I program provides supplemental educational services so that all children have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education.
The purpose of Title I is to provide all children significant opportunity to receive a fair, equitable, and high-quality education, and to close educational achievement gaps. The program receives federal funding from the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA), No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, and the Economic Impact Aid--State Compensatory Education (EIA-SCE).
Schools receiving these supplemental federal funds are required to provide services that raise the academic achievement level of K through 12th grade participants. Additional support may be provided through professional development and health and guidance services. Parents of children being served have the opportunity to participate in the design and implementation of the program through activities such as serving on the school site council; developing parental involvement policies and compacts; attending parent-teacher conferences, parent training and literacy workshops; participating as classroom volunteers, tutors, and aides, etc.
