In 2001, the No Child Left Behind Act was signed into law. It authorized a federally funded educational program, which is the single largest precollege federal education program of its kind. Title I provides financial assistance to states and school districts in order to meet the needs of educationally at-risk students as well as supplemental funds.
The purpose of Title I is to ensure that every student has access to
an equal, fair, and high-quality education that meets, at a minimum, proficiency on challenging state academic achievement standards and assessments.
Title I can help:
• Children to be more successful in school
• Parents to have a voice in their child’s education
• Teachers to collaborate with parents to assist their child’s education
