Title I ESEA: How It Works. A Guide for Parents and Parent Advisory Councils.
Office of Education (DHEW), Washington, DC.
Parents and taxpayers should understand Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act so that they can ensure 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 booklet is written especially for parent advisory council members and other parents whose children are eligible to receive Title I services. It describes what activities Title I can fund and which children it can help; summarizes the rights and responsibilities of parent advisory councils and other parents under Title I; outlines the local, State, and Federal responsibilities; and briefly outlines the Title I funding process and the procedure by which Title I target areas are selected. Addresses of State Title I ESEA coordinators, a list of other national service or information organizations, and a glossary of terms are also included. (Author/KR)
