Title l - Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA)

  • What is Title I?

     Title I (Part A) The Every Student Suceeds Act (ESSA) must continue to utilize Title I funds to provide support for the most at-risk students.  The Title I program is designed to provide equal education where the school identifies children who are failing or most at-risk of failing to meet the states challenging performance standards.  Each school, in consultation with parents and staff design instructional programs to meet the needs of all students.

    Brunswick County School District serves fourteen Title I Schools, which consists of all Elementary and Middle Schools.  Each school operates within a school-wide program with the focus on meeting the needs for all students.


    Who is served by Title l?

     Title l is designed to support all students who are struggling to meet all State Standards.  Title I services are based on meeting the academic needs of all students.  The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) is the Federal Education Law approved in December 2015 to replace, No Child Left Behind.

    The new law continues to focus on accountability and student level assessments for all students in reading and mathematics in grades 3 - 8, science assessments at least once in the elementary grades and at least once in the middle grades, college and career readiness in the high school grades and being accountable for all student subgroups.


    What "classifies" a school as Title l?

    Title I is the largest federal education funding program for schools nationwide.  The focus of this funding is to help those students who are behind or at risk of failing academically.  The amount of funding a school receives is based on the number of low-income students, generally those eligible for the free and reduced lunch program. 


    What services are provided and how are Title l funds used?

     The types of services provided is limited to each School's Improvement Plan (SIP) and structured according to evidence based programs. 

    Title l funds are mainly used to provide salaries, tutors, special reading or mathematics teachers, learning labs, and professional development for school staff. Title l schools are required to meet state and federal mandates for achievement known as Annual Measureable Objectives therefore Administration and other staff collaborate to maximize this funding each year.
