|Title I, Part A of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA) is the largest federally-funded program for elementary, middle, and high schools. Money is allocated to school districts based on the number of low-income families in each district. Each district uses Title I money to provide services for children most in need of educational help, conduct parental involvement activities, purchase supplemental programs and supplies, and to recruit/retain Highly Qualified teachers.
