Title I is part of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA) which has been reauthorized as ESSA- Every Student Succeeds Act. This act provides federal funds through the Georgia Department of Education to LEAs (Local Education Agencies) and public schools with high numbers of poor children to help ensure that all children meet challenging State academic content and student academic standards.

LEAs target the Title I funds they receive to public schools with the highest percentages of children from low-income families.  These funds may be used for children from preschool age to high school.  Title I is designed to support State and local school reform efforts tied to challenging State academic standards in order to reinforce and enhance efforts to improve teaching and learning for students.  Title I programs must be based on effective means of improving student achievement and include strategies to support parental involvement.

Under Title I, LEAs are required to provide services for eligibile private school students as well.  The Title I services provided by the LEA for private school participants are designed to meet the educational needs and supplement the educational services of eligible private school students.  These services must be developed in consultation with officials of private schools.
