What is Title I?
Title I is a federally funded program under the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) of 2001. The law, which was signed into effect on January 8, 2002, amends the Elementary and Secondary Act of 1965 (ESEA), and replaces the Improving America's Schools Act of 1994. The act contains four basic principles: stronger accountability for results, increased flexibility and local control, more choices for parents and students, and an emphasis on research-based instructional strategies.
The Title I program is designed to assist low-achieving students meet our state's challenging academic content and performance standards. Schools qualify for Title I funds based on economic need. The Title I program offers a variety of services for participating schools, which may include: additional teachers and support staff, extra time for instruction, a variety of teaching methods and materials, smaller classes and additional training for staff. For the 2014-2015 school year, eighteen of Onslow County's elementary schools, one preschool center, and one private school will receive Title I services.
