LEA Plan                             

                                    

Title I, Part A

Title I of the Elementary & Secondary Education Act (ESEA) is the largest federally funded educational program. This program, authorized by Congress, provides supplemental funds to  school districts to assist schools with the highest student concentration of poverty in order to meet educational goals.

 Title I Programs

  • Based on the school’s economic level
  • Accountable for adequate progress in the schools it serves
  • Researched based instruction in language, reading, and math to ensure effective instructional strategies
  • Afford parents opportunities to participate in the education of their children at home and school
  • Provide opportunities for professional development within schools and in the Hickman County School System

School-wide Program (SWP): 

To be eligible to operate a school-wide program, the school must be selected by LEA with an approved school-wide plan and meet the required poverty threshold of 40 percent. School-wide programs are not required to specifically identify eligible Title I students for targeted Title I services over and above the regular program.  All students are eligible to participate in all aspects of the school-wide program, as appropriate. 

The Title I program is a Federal program of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 and ESSA which assists students in Grades K-5 who are experiencing difficulty in Reading. Students qualify based on test scores and teacher recommendation. Students who are in greatest need are served first. The Parent Involvement component of the program seeks to involve the student’s parents in the educational process to the maximum extent possible.

Title II, Part A

Title II, Part A replaced the Eisenhower Professional Development and the Class-Size Reduction programs. The Eisenhower program mostly focused on professional development in mathematics and science, while Title II, Part A can support teacher professional development across all core academic subjects. The importance of professional development in mathematics and science remains a high priority, but many other activities are now allowed as well.

The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB), which reauthorized the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA), places a major emphasis upon the importance of teacher quality in improving student achievement. To help ensure that all teachers of core academic subjects are highly qualified no later than the end of the 2005-2006 school year, Title II, Part A of ESEA – the Improving Teacher Quality State Grants program – provides funds can be used to prepare, train, and recruit high-quality teachers and principals capable of ensuring that all children will achieve to high standards.

Title VI

The Small, Rural School Achievement (SRSA) Program is an initiative designed to address the unique needs of rural school districts. These districts frequently lack personnel and resources needed to compete for federal competitive grants and often receive formula allocations that are too small to be used effectively for their intended purposes. SRSA retains the current Rural Education Achievement Program, which provides additional formula funds and flexibility in the use of certain funds to small rural districts. It creates a new program to provide additional funds to rural districts that:
1. are ineligible to participate in the Small, Rural School Achievement Program
2. serve concentrations of poor students

SRSA provides participating LEAs with additional flexibility by authorizing them to consolidate their allocations under the Teacher Quality, Innovative Programs (formerly Title VI), Safe and Drug-Free Schools, and Educational Technology. It also allows LEAs to use their consolidated funds to carry out activities authorized under Title I, Teacher Quality State Grants (Title II-A), Educational Technology State Grants (Title II-D), Language Acquisition State Grants (Title III), Innovative Program State Grants (Title V-A), and Safe and Drug-Free Schools State Grants (Title IV-A). LEAs may use consolidated funds to carry out activities authorized under Title I, Eisenhower Professional Development, Safe and Drug-Free Schools, and Technology Literacy Challenge Fund programs.
The Rural and Low-Income School Program authorizes LEAs to use program funds for:
1. teacher recruitment
2. professional development
3. educational technology
4. parental involvement activities
5. activities authorized under Safe and Drug-Free Schools
6. activities authorized under Title I, Part A
7. activities authorized under Title III
