  • What is Title 1?

    Improving the Academic Achievement of the Disadvantaged

    Title I, Part A of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA), as amended, provides financial assistance to local educational agencies (Little Rock School District) and schools with high numbers or high percentages of children from economically disadvantaged 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 Arkansas. It was originally enacted as the cornerstone of President Lyndon Johnson’s War on Poverty.
