Title 1, Part A Program Annual Update - School Year 2023-24

Northshore School District's Crystal Springs, Kenmore, Woodin & Woodmoor Elementary Schools, and Northshore Early Learning Receive Title 1 Funds.

What is Title 1, Part A?

The federal “Elementary and Secondary Act” (ESEA) – enacted in 1965 – is the nation’s national education law. ESEA authorizes several state-run programs for eligible schools and districts. The “Every Student Succeeds Act” (ESSA) – passed by Congress in 2015 – works to address performance gaps between student groups in schools.

Title I, Part A is a federal program designed to provide all children with significant opportunity to receive a fair, equitable, and high-quality education, and to close educational achievement gaps. Title I programs and services provide supplemental education assistance that supports struggling learners and helps students meet our state’s challenging academic standards and assessments. This update is intended to provide you with important information about this law and how it applies to your student.

Please share your questions and ideas!

We appreciate your feedback and participation in our programs! Each school site has already or will be contacting and meeting with families to share the required Title I notification, Parent Engagement Plan and Policy, School/Parent/Student Compact, and Annual Meeting notice. Attending a school’s annual meeting and/or Title I events is a terrific way to obtain information, get questions answered, and provide input and feedback that increases the success of our programs!

You can help in your student’s success!
