Title I Program

Title I, Economic Impact Aid—State Compensatory Education (EIA-SCE)

The purpose of Title I and EIA-SCE is to meet the educational needs of low-income children and the needs of children in local institutions for neglected or delinquent children. Participants include students who are at risk of failing, disabled, and in private schools.

Compensatory education funds supplement services needed to raise the academic achievement level of K through 12 participants in basic and advanced skills. Additional support may be provided through professional development and health and guidance services. Parents of children being served have the opportunity to participate in the design and implementation of the program through activities such as developing parent policy and compacts; parent-teacher conferences; parent training and literacy; classroom volunteers, tutors, aides, etc.; the Compensatory Education Advisory Committee (CEAC); and the District Advisory Committee (DAC). The program receives federal funding from the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA), No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, and the Economic Impact Aid--State Compensatory Education (EIA-SCE).
