Title I is a federally funded program which provides services to schools based on student economic needs. Title I is the largest Federal Assistance Program for our nation's schools. The goal is to provide a high-quality education for every child, so the program provides extra help to students who need it most. These students are the furthest from meeting the standards the state has set for all children.
On January 8, 2002, President Bush signed into law the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001. This new law represents the education reform plan and contains the most sweeping changes to the Elementary and Secondary Education Act since it was enacted in 1965.
