is a federal program that serves the unique needs of children
— kindergarten to grade 12 — who struggle to learn. Title I programs and
services provide customized instruction and curricula that helps these students
meet academic standards and take an active, engaged interest in what they learn
and can do. As the oldest and largest federal education program, Title I
programs build equity of opportunity for children whose struggles often keep
them on the academic sidelines.
Title I, Part A Schoolwide and Targeted Assistance Schools 2016–17
The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) replaced No Child Left Behind (NCLB) on
December 10, 2015, as the reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary
Education Act (ESEA). As OSPI confirms details about the new law, we will
post them to our ESSA website. ESSA will
be fully operational in school year 2017-18.
OSPI will release the annual application for Title I, Part A (iGrant Form Package 201) once the preliminary allocations are available from ED (anticipated in late May/early June).
Please note: parts of the 2017-18 Title I, Part A Annual Application may involve collaboration efforts with LEA staff outside of the Title I, Part A program. In advance of the application launch, and to assist you in any areas where collaboration is needed, OSPI will post parts of the application here. ESSA requires new information to be collected as part of LEA’s Title I, Part A plans.
