Title 1

Title 1, Part A (Title 1) of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, as amended (ESEA) provides financial assistance to local educational agencies (LEAs) and schools with high numbers or high percentages of children from low-income families to help ensure that all children meet challenging state academic standards. Federal funds are currently allocated through four statutory formulas that are based primarily on census poverty estimates and the cost of education in each state.

Title 1 Parent Involvement:  A minimum of 1% of a school's allocation of Title I, Part A funds must support parent involvement activities and programs. Chancellor’s Regulation A-655 requires School Leadership Teams to consult with Title I parent representatives regarding the Title I program and the use of these funds. Each Title I school must jointly develop a Parent Involvement Policy (PIP) that describes how the school will carry out the parent involvement requirements aligned with student achievement goals, including the development of a school-parent compact in the School Comprehensive Education Plan (CEP). The jointly developed PIP must align closely with the Title I Parent Involvement set-aside expenditures.
