Titile l - ESEA Flexibility, NCLB and Federal Funding

What is Title l?

Title l is short for "Part A of Improving America's Schools Act of 1994, Reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965".  The Elementary and Secondary Education Act was reauthorized in 2001 and is commonly referred to as, The No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB).

Title l funds are used to provide support for the most at risk students.  This program is designed to provide equal education where the school identifies children who are failing, or most at risk of failing, to meet the State's challenging performance standards.  Each school, in consultation with parents, staff, and district staff, design instructional programs to meet the needs of all students.

Brunswick County School District serves fourteen Title l Schools, which consist of all Elementary and Middle Schools.  Each school operates within a school wide program therefore identified students are served at each of the Title l Schools.

Who is served by Title l?

Title l is designed to support all students who are struggling to meet the State Standards academically.  Title l services are based on acadeic need not the poverty level of a student or their family.   Title l funds can also be used to serve academic needs of students who are Limited English speaking proficient, students who have been identified as McKinney Vento (Homeless), and students with disabilities.

What "classifies" a school as Title l?

Title l is the largest federal education funding program for schools nationwide.  The focus of this funding is to help those students who are behind or at risk of failing academically.  The amount of funding a school receives is based on the number of low-income students, generally those eligible for free and reduced lunch program. 

Those districts who participate in Community Eligibility Program (known as CEP) receive funding based on low-income students as well.

What services are provided and how are Title l funds used?

The types of services provided is limited to each School's Improvement Plan and structured according to research based programs. 

Title l funds are mainly used to provide salaries, tutors, special reading or mathematics teachers, learning labs, and professional development for school staff. Title l schools are required to meet state and federal mandates for achievement known as Annual Measureable Objectives therefore Administration and other staff collaborate to maximize this funding each year.
