Title One

Purpose of Title 1

The purpose of Title I and EIA-EDY is to meet the educational needs of children from low-income households and the needs of children in local institutions for neglected or delinquent children. Participants include students who are at-risk of failing, disabled, and in private schools.

These funds supplement services needed to raise the academic achievement levels of K through 12 participants in basic and advanced skills. 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 developing parental involvement policies and compacts; parent-teacher conferences; parent training and literacy; participating as classroom volunteers, tutors, aides, etc. The program receives federal funding from the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA), No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, and Economic Impact Aid-Educationally Disadvantaged Youth (EIA-EDY).
