Title I is a federally funded program. The purpose of Title I is to enable all children to meet high academic standards. Title I of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (formerly known as ECIA, ESEA or Chapter 1) is the largest federally funded educational program. Congress has provided financial assistance to qualifying school districts since 1965.
As authorized, Title I provides supplemental funds to school districts to assist schools with the highest student concentrations of poverty to meet school educational goals. This is accomplished by providing meaningful and challenging opportunities for student learning. Under Title I legislation, schools, and families form partnerships to help students who need support in meeting these high academic standards.
