Title I

Title I is a federally funded K-12 program authorized under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) of 1965 as reauthorized by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). The central purpose of the program is to ensure that all students in grades K-12 have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach at least minimum levels of proficiency in core subjects. Through the allocation of supplemental federal funds and other resources to be used in accordance with its annual strategic action plan, called the “School Plan for Student Achievement,” each Title I school is enabled to provide the evidence-based supplemental supports and services necessary to ensure that all of its students enjoy equitable access to the school’s educational program and experience academic success and growth. Title I funds are allocated annually to LAUSD schools based on the percentage of low income students aged 5 to 17 that are enrolled at the school on “norm day” (CBEDS Information Day) every October.
