The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 reauthorized the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA). Title I, Part A, Improving the Academic Achievement of the Disadvantaged, "is intended to help ensure that all children have the opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach proficiency on challenging state academic standards and assignments."
In Fayette County, the Title I program works to help schools meet Kentucky's new accountability system goals, attain the academic core concepts based on the Common Core State Standards, coordinate resources to improve education for all students, and support school reform efforts so all students graduate college- and career-ready.
Title I school mini-budgets help fund the schools' strategies and activities. Title I district money provides technical assistance to the schools and professional development for their Title I staff. Title I funds also may be used for additional instructional staff, extended-time programs and other means of raising student achievement in high-poverty schools.
