Title I

Title 1-A Programs


Title I, part A of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) provides financial assistance to districts and schools who serve a larger population of children from families experiencing poverty. By providing additional resources, the program is intended to ensure that all students have access to academically enriching curriculum and meet the state’s challenging academic standards.

Oregon School Districts determine which schools to fund with Title I-A, according to specific requirements in ESSA. More information can be found in the Rank and Serve Brief.

As outlined in the ESSA, Title I-A funded schools may implement one of two approaches: 1) a Schoolwide Program (SWP) or 2) a Targeted Assistance Program (TAS). These approaches specify how a school receiving Title I-A funds can support students meeting the standards.
