Title I Part A provides federal dollars for supplemental educational opportunities for disadvantaged children who are failing to meet the State’s challenging content and performance standards.
A school-wide program permits an eligible school to use Title A Part A funds in combination with State and local resources and other federal education program funds to upgrade the entire educational program of the school to raise the academic level of all students.
