This section provides school district level data pertaining to Fiscal Year 2010 allocations under Title I, Part A of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) of 1965 (Title I). The ESEA Title I, the largest Federal elementary and secondary education program, supplements State and local funding for low-achieving children, especially in high-poverty schools. The program finances the additional academic support and learning opportunities that are often required to help disadvantaged students progress along with their classmates.

It is the intent that these funds will create improved educational opportunities for at-risk students and close the achievement gaps while also stimulating the economy. Among goals are to enable LEAs to help more at-risk students and boost the quality of teaching and learning.

How should these funds be expended to improve the primary goals (educational opportunities for at-risk students and close the achievement gaps)? In the past these funds have mainly been used for instruction-based intervention and augmentation (more/different teachers/aides, longer sessions, augmented teaching tools and processes, varied class structures/operations). See one results analysis here. The primary issue, however, is lacking interest, motivation, propensity/ability to participate in learning by the students. Analyzing where Title I objective students are located (residences) and developing neighborhood-based outreach programs to stimulate involvement may be a far better use of these funds.

Title I provisions specifically enable use of the funds for "Using longitudinal data systems to drive continuous improvement efforts focused on improving achievement in Title I schools." See Examples of potential uses of the Title I (find that text on the target page).
