Title I, Part A - Improving the Academic Achievement of the Disadvantaged

Title I, originally enacted in 1965 as part of the War on Poverty to help the most economically disadvantaged students, is the largest federal investment in elementary and secondary education. Title I funding helps improve teaching and learning in schools with the highest concentrations of poverty (based on the percentage of direct certification students at the school) to help them meet challenging state academic standards.

Title I, Part C - Education of Migratory Children

Title I Migrant provides supplemental educational and social services to migrant children and their families. At the preschool level, the focus is on language development and school readiness. Dropout prevention is the goal at the elementary, middle and high school levels. After-school tutoring, advocacy, counseling, social services and summer programs are provided. Parent involvement is a major focus.
