Title I

Public Law 107-110, No Child Left Behind Act, was passed by Congress in December 2001 and took effect July 1, 2002.  Title I is the section of the law that provides funding to support “educationally deprived” students in schools with concentrations of poverty that meet the criteria outlined in the law. The new law represents significant expansion of the federal role in K-12 education. 

The focuses of Title I include:

1)   Minimum qualifications of personnel working with students
2)   A
national deadline for all public schools to bring all their children to an achievement level deemed “proficient” by the state.  
3)  A
uthorization of the use of federal funds for a voucher-like program of extra tutoring for children in the most troubled Title I schools.
4)  Mandates that curricula and techniques be grounded in scientifically-based research for federally funded programs.  
5)  High quality professional development for teachers.
6)  The importance of parental involvement in students' education.
