    Title I Overview

    Title I is a part of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA). This act provides federal funds through the Georgia Department of Education to local educational agencies (LEAs) and public schools with high numbers or percentages of economically disadvantaged children to help ensure that all children meet challenging State academic content and student academic achievement standards.

    LEAs target the Title I funds they receive to public schools with the highest percentages of children from low income families. These funds may be used for children from preschool age to high school. Title I is designed to support State and local school reform efforts tied to challenging State academic standards in order to reinforce and enhance efforts to improve teaching and learning for students. Title I programs must be based on effective means of improving student achievement and include strategies to support parental involvement.

    Under Title I, local educational agencies (LEAs) are required to provide services for public school students as well as eligible private school students. The Title I services provided by the LEA for private school participants are designed to meet their educational needs and supplement the educational services provided by the private school. These services must be developed in consultation with officials of the private schools.
