Areas of Federal Programs

Title I, Part A – Improving the Academic Achievement of Dis-advantaged Students –Title I, Part A the cornerstone of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) , previously known as No Child Left Behind (NCLB), is the largest federal education program.  Its intent is to help ensure that all children have the opportunity to obtain a high quality education and reach proficiency on challenging State academic content and performance standards.

The Title I, Part C-Migrant Education Program (MEP) – funds additional educational programs for migrant children (ages 3-21). Migrant students have the same risk factors as other students. These students also face further challenges because of their frequent moves.
