Title I at American Leadership Academy


What is Title I?

Title I, Part A (Title I) of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, as amended (ESEA) provides financial assistance to local educational agencies (LEAs) and schools with high numbers or high percentages of children from low-income families to help ensure that all children meet challenging state academic standards. For the 2015-2016 school year, American Leadership Academy received Title I funds to add highly qualified reading and math teachers and paraprofessionals to the ALA team. Teachers and Paraprofessionals provided supplemental student learning resources under the Title I Targeted Assistance Program for our lowest performing students. We also used Title I funds to provide after-school intervention and a four-week summer school remediation for low-performing students entering grades 3rd-8th focusing on English Language Arts, Math, and a STEM-based program called Camp Invention and Invention Project (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math).

How Are We Funded?

Title I money was distributed to our school based on the completion of the ESEA Eligibility Form collected at the start of the school year or during enrollment. For every form with an Indicator 1 or Indicator 2, the state gives us dollars to ensure the success of students meeting and exceeding state standards. Each school year, families must complete the ESEA Eligibility Form. Please note, only one form per family should be completed. Return the completed form to your campus front office as soon as possible. All information is kept confidential.
