Title I, Part A of the Elementary and Secondary Act (ESEA), provides financial assistance to local educational agencies (LEAs) and schools, with high numbers or percentages of children from low-income families, to assist schools in ensuring that all children meet challenging academic standards. Districts or schools accepting Title I funds are required to provide all children with fair, equitable and significant educational opportunities to obtain a high-quality education and to reach--at a minimum--proficiency on challenging state academic standards and assessments.
