Title I Overview
Title I is designed to provide all students equitable opportunities for quality education that help close achievement gaps. Funding is available for schools with high percentages of students from low income households. These federal funds are allocated through formulas based on census poverty data estimated along with the cost of education in each state. Title I, Part A (Title I) of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA)
Title I Parents/Guardians Right-to-Know
Parents/guardians have the right to information on the professional qualifications of their child’s classroom teacher from the school district.
The federal education law put in place by the Elementary & Secondary Education Act (ESEA) requires that all parents in a Title I school be notified and given the opportunity to request information about the professional qualifications of classroom teachers instructing their child.
In addition, a Title I school must provide each parent of a child who is a student in such school with information on the student’s level of achievement and academic growth on each Title I state academic assessment (if applicable and available) and timely notice that the student has been assigned (or has been taught for four or more consecutive weeks by) a teacher who does not meet applicable state certification or licensure requirements at the grade level and subject area in which the teacher has been assigned.
