Title I, Part A

Title I, Part A - Improving Basic Education

Title I, Part A, along with the rest of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act was reauthorized on January 8, 2002 by the No Child Left Behind Act, P.L. 107-110.

More than 50,000 public schools across the country use Title I funds to provide addi­tional academic support and learning opportunities to help low-achieving children master challenging curricula and meet state standards in core academic subjects. For example, funds support extra instruction in reading and mathematics, as well as special preschool, after-school, and summer programs to extend and reinforce the regular school curriculum.
