Title I Supplemental Educational Services

Title I, Part A of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, as amended recently as the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), provides funding to school districts with high numbers of children from low-income families. The added federal funding helps to ensure that all students are learning and meeting state-level academic standards.

Title I is important because it provides students significant opportunity to receive a fair, equitable, high-quality education that, in turn, helps to close educational achievement gaps.

Program Elements
  • needs assessment and program plan design
  • parent involvement
  • services to students enrolled in private schools
  • high-quality teachers and para-educators
  • coordination of services for homeless students in non-Title I schools
  • support for Title I focus and priority schools
  • comparability

In Nashua, Title I funds are used in eligible schools to provide in-school reading and math support, preschool experiences, and educational supplies and materials.

In addition, Title I schools also provide parents with school-wide programming plans.
