  • Title I, Part A

    Improving Basic Programs provides supplemental resources to local educational agencies (LEAs) to help schools with high concentrations of students from low-income families provide high-quality education that will enable all children to meet the challenging state academic standards.

  • Title II, Part A

    Targets student academic achievement through improving teacher and principal quality and increasing the number of highly qualified teachers in classrooms and qualified principals and assistant principals in the district. The intended beneficiaries of Title II funds are teachers and principals, including assistant principals, and as appropriate, administrators, pupil services personnel, and paraprofessionals.

  • Title III, Part A

    Supports supplemental resources to campuses to help ensure that children who are limited English proficient (LEP) attain English proficiency at high levels in core academic subjects and can meet state mandated achievement performance standards. Intended beneficiaries of Title III funds are LEP students, including immigrant children and youth.

  • Title IV, Part A

    Overarching goal of this program is to increase the capacity of State education Agencies, State Education Agencies, Campuses, and communities to meet goals around student access to well-rounded education, maintain safe and healthy students and improve the use of technology to advance academic achievement.
