Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) of 1965 (with its reauthorizations) is designed to help disadvantaged children meet challenging content and performance standards. Part A of Title I provides financial assistance through State educational agencies to local education agencies (LEAs) to meet the educational needs of children who are failing or are at risk of failing to meet a state's standards in schools, children living in areas with high concentrations of low-income families, and children in local institutions for delinquent and neglected children. This document is a guide to help state and local agencies use Part A funds to support the coordination of Part A with other ESEA programs. The guide includes the following chapters: (1) State Educational Agency Allocation of Title I Funds to Local Educational Agencies for School Year 1996-97; Local Educational Agency Identification and Selection of School Attendance Areas and Allocation of Title I Funds to Those Areas or Schools; (2) Schoolwide Programs; (3) Targeted Assistance Schools; (4) Serving Preschool Children; (5) Parental Involvement; (6) Professional Development; (7) Providing Services to Eligible Private School Children; (8) Uses of Funds; and (9) Fiscal Requirements. Twenty-one examples illustrate the use of funds. (SLD)
