Title I, Part A — Improving Basic Programs

Title I, Part A – Improving Basic Programs Operated By Local Educational Agencies—of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) of 2015, provides supplemental funding to state and local educational agencies to acquire additional education resources at schools serving high concentrations of students from low-income homes. These resources are used to improve the quality of education programs and ensure students from low-income families have opportunities to meet challenging state assessments.

Title I, Part A schools implement either a Schoolwide program or a Targeted Assistance program. Both Title I, Part A models — Schoolwide and Targeted Assistance — use evidence-based methods and instructional strategies.
