Title I ESEA: How It Works. A Guide for Parents and Parent Advisory Councils.
Office of Education (DHEW), Washington, DC. Office of Programs for the Disadvantaged.
Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) is the largest Federal aid to education program. Public Law 89-10 did not limit the kinds of services which could be provided with Title I funds. It is important that parents understand what Title I is all about. As members of the advisory council and even as taxpayers, they must see that funds are properly spent, that children who need help most receive it, and that federal and state laws are followed in distributing and using Title I funds. This book is an effort to see that the Title I program works by making sure it is properly understood. It is divided into four parts. Part 1 contains the basic information parents need to know about Title I--what activities it can fund and which children it can help. The second part summarizes the rights and responsibilities of the parent advisory council and other parents under Title I. Helpful suggestions for parents also appear throughout the guide. The third part concentrates on local, state, and federal responsibilities under Title I; that is, what parents can expect their state or local education agency and the U.S. Office of Education to do. The last part gives a brief account of the Title I funding process and how Title I target areas are chosen. (Author/JM)
