What is Title I?
Title I, Part A is a part of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) provides federal funds through the Georgia Department of Education for public schools with high numbers or percentages of economically challenged children to help ensure that those children meet the challenging State academic content and student academic achievement standards.
Schools receive the Title I, Part A funds based upon the percentage of scholars who qualify for free or reduced priced lunch.
