What is ESEA Title I?
ESEA stands for Elementary and Secondary Education Act. This encompasses our nation's schools, providing numerous federal funds. State Educational Agencies (SEAs) provide funds to the school districts based on the number of low-income families. Each year this program serves as a resource for a multitude of children in elementary and secondary schools. Title I also assists children in parochial and private schools.
Goals of the ESEA Title I Program
The primary goal is to provide each child with the opportunity to obtain the necessary skills to develop an interest in reading. Another goal is to encourage each student to feel comfortable and confident, not only in reading, but also in the content areas within our curriculum. Furthermore, we emphasize the need for continuous communication among Title I teachers, classroom teachers, and parents.
