Title I, Part A - Improving Basic Programs

The Improving Basic Programs Operated by Local Education Agencies effort in Title I, Part A of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), as amended by the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB), provides supplemental funding to state and local education agencies. This funding pays for resources to assist schools with high concentrations of students from low-income families. These resources improve education quality and help ensure all children in low-income contexts meet the state's student performance standards. Title I, Part A provides support to schools in implementing either a school-wide program or a targeted assistance program. Title I, Part A programs use effective methods and instructional strategies that are grounded in scientific research.

Title I, Part A - School Improvement (SIP)

Title I, Part A, Section 1116 SIP provides supplemental funds to Title I campuses identified for school improvement by failing to make adequate yearly progress for two or more consecutive years. Campuses use funds to implement their campus' revised campus improvement plan, which incorporates strategies based on scientific research that have the greatest likelihood of enabling participating children to meet the state's student performance standards. LEA's must provide students attending Title I low-performing schools the option to transfer to another public school within the district.
