Title I-A Program Description

  • Title I, Part A (Title I-A) of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), as amended by the Every Student Success Act (ESSA) provides financial assistance to local educational agencies (LEAs) and schools with high numbers or high percentages of children from low-income families to help ensure that all children meet challenging state academic standards. Federal funds are currently allocated through four statutory formulas that are based primarily on census poverty estimates and the cost of education in each state. [1]

    Federal law requires all school districts receiving Title I-A funding to establish a procedure for parent involvement at Title I-A schools. A copy of the Medford School Board Policy I.GBC-AR Title I-A/Parental and Family Procedures English Spanish is available in all school offices, on the district website www.medford.k12.or.us .

Equitable Services

The term equitable services refers to the process of providing students, teachers, staff and families at eligible Private and Non-Profit Schools fair access to federally funded education programs and services, as appropriate.
