"A well-rounded education is about that inextricable intersection between what our kids learn, and who they become"
What is Title I?
Title I, Part A of the Elementary and Secondary Act (ESEA) otherwise know as the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB), is a federally-funded program for that serves the unique needs of children - ages 5-17 - who struggle to learn. These funds are used by Title I schools to provide extra educational services for children who need additional instruction to reach grade-level standards. Administrators, teachers, and parents of Title I schools decide how the federal funds should be spent to meet the needs of struggling students at their respective schools. Title I schools use their funds for a variety of allowable services, including the following:
- Instructional personnel
- Professional development
- Parent and family engagement
- Extension of the school day
- Extended learning opportunities
- Classroom interventions
- Supplemental tutoring and alternate supports
Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA)
While the ESEA has been reauthorized as the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) and signed into law by President Barak Obama on December 10, 2015, most of the provisions of the ESSA will not take effect until the 2017-18 school year. The State and Federal Programs Office at Paso Robles Joint Unified School District will continually monitor, adjust, and post new information when released by the Department of Education and/or the California Department of Education as it becomes available.
