Degrees and Certifications:
Title I is the largest federal education program supported through the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965. The current authorization is referred to as the "No Child Left Behind" Act. Schools qualify for fiscal support from Title I through the participation of students in the subsidized lunch program. Regulations require that school staff and parents participate in determining how funds are best used to meet the needs of a school. Title I schools are held accountable for and support student achievement, school improvement, and family engagement.
