Title I Programs

Title I, Part A - Improving the Academic Achievement of the Disadvantaged

Title I, Part A is the largest federal program supporting both elementary and secondary education. The program's resources are allocated based upon the poverty rates of students enrolled in schools and districts and are designed to help ensure that all children meet challenging state academic standards.

Title I, Part C (NCLB) — Education of Migratory Children

The Migrant Education Program (MEP) supports students to reach high standards of academic achievement and is the level of interstate cooperation through the transfer of migrant students' education and health records. This high priority activity helps assure that migrant students are placed appropriately when they enroll in a new school. Their teachers are able to meet their needs and valuable time is not wasted. In addition, secondary students benefit significantly since the transfer of credits and/or partial credits assists them in meeting graduation requirements. The dropout rate among migrant students is high because of the frustration and hopelessness these students encounter when schools are not able to meet their academic needs.
