Title I, Part A - Improving the Academic Achievement of the Disadvantaged
Title I, Part A is a part of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). The purpose of Title I, Part A is to ensure that all children have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach, at minimum, proficiency on challenging state academic achievement standards and state academic assessments. Title I funding supports state and local reform efforts tied to challenging State academic standards in order to reinforce and enhance efforts to improve teaching and learning for students. Title I, Part A programs must be based on effective means of improving student achievement and include evidenced-based strategies. These funds are used to provide remediation to children, develop staff, and engage families.
A school-wide program is a school in which children from low-income families make up at least 40% of enrollment. In schoolwide programs, Title I funds are used to serve all of the children in the school. There are 24 schools operating School-wide Title I programs in the Henry County School System for the 2021-2022 school year.
