Other Title Programs
Title I, Part A - School Improvement
Title I, Part A, Section 1116 School Improvement Program provides supplemental funds to Title I campuses identified for school improvement by failing to make adequate yearly progress (AYP) for two or more consecutive years. Campuses use funds to implement their revised campus improvement plan, which incorporates strategies based on scientifically based research, in ways that have the greatest likelihood of improving the performance of participating children in meeting the state's student performance standards. A student attending a Title I low-performing school must be provided the option to transfer to another public school within the LEA unless the LEA lacks the capacity to do so.
Title II, Part A - Preparing, Training and Recruiting High Quality Teachers and Principals
Title II, Part A funds may be used for recruitment, retention, and training of highly qualified teachers, principals, and when appropriate, paraprofessionals. Also, funds are used for professional development including conducting needs assessment, developing a plan and appropriate delivery of services. Activities funded with these funds must be aligned with state academic content and student academic achievement standards and must be based on scientifically based research. Title II-A funds must provide activities that have a substantial, measurable, and positive impact on student achievement and are to be used as part of a broader strategy to eliminate the achievement gap that separates low income and minority students from other students.
Title IV, Part A - Student Support and Academic Enrichment (SSAE) Program
The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) was signed into law in December 2015. It reauthorized the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA). Newly authorized under subpart 1 of Title IV, Part A of the ESEA is the Student Support and Academic Enrichment (SSAE) program. The SSAE program is intended to improve students’ academic achievement by increasing the capacity of State educational agencies (SEAs), local educational agencies (LEAs), and local communities to provide all students with access to a well-rounded education; improve school conditions for student learning; and improve the use of technology to improve the academic achievement and digital literacy of all students.
Title V, Part B - Rural and Low Income Schools
The Title V, Part B, Subpart 2 program is funded under the Rural Education Achievement Program (REAP) and is designed to assist rural school districts in using Federal resources more effectively to improve the quality of instruction and student academic achievement.
