Every Student Succeeds Act




Title I provides funds to supplement the core curriculum and facilitate the success of identified educationally disadvantaged students.  The funds are used to provide services in the areas of language arts, reading and mathematics, professional development, counseling and guidance, and family involvement.  Funds are appropriated according to the number of poverty students.  Services may include teachers, coaches, counselors, consultants, instructional materials, training, equipment and program support.  Title I monies must be used to supplement the general educational core program.

A district reservation must be set aside for education of those students identified as homeless.

Non public schools in the area of Title I attendance may be eligible for services.

Title I funds are set aside for district summer school programs.


Title II programs and funds are intended to be used for teacher recruitment and teacher quality.  Funds may be used for teacher or principal training, math and  science partnerships,  and professional innovative strategies.  Title II part D monies are intended for enhancing education through technology.


Title III is a state managed program for English learners.  Monies must be used to supplement what is already being done with Economics Impact Aid to benefit, only, English learners.


The newly enacted bipartisan Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) includes a flexible block grant program known as Student Support and Academic Enrichment Grants (SSAEG) under Title IV Part A, which is authorized at $1.65 billion in fiscal year 2017.  Title IV, Part A authorizes activities in three broad areas: 1. Providing students with a well-rounded education including programs such as college and career counseling, STEM, arts, civics and International Baccalaureate/Advanced Placement. 2. Supporting safe and healthy students with comprehensive school mental health, drug and violence prevention, training on trauma-informed practices, and health and physical education. 3.  Supporting the effective use of technology that is backed by professional development, blended learning and ed tech devices.
