Title I, Part A
Title I, Part A of the Elementary and Secondary Act of 1965 (ESEA) provides local
education agencies (LEA's, or school districts) with extra resources to help improve
instruction in high-poverty schools and ensure that poor and minority children have
the same opportunity as other children to meet challenging State academic standards.
The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB) reauthorizes the ESEA and incorporates nearly
all of the major reforms proposed by President Bush in his own No Child Left Behind framework
for education reform, particularly in the areas of assessment, accountability, and school improvement.
Parental Involvement Program
Title I, Part A Parental Involvement Program implements programs, activities, and procedures for the
involvement of parents in programs assisted under this part consistent with this section. Such programs,
activities, and procedures shall be planned and implemented with meaningful consultation with parents
of participating children.
