Title I

The purpose of Title I, Part A of Public Law 107-110 is to enable schools to provide opportunities for children served to acquire the knowledge and skills contained in the challenging state content standards and to meet the challenging state performance standards developed for all children. The purpose can be achieved by ensuring that all children have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach, at a minimum, proficiency on challenging State academic achievement standards and state academic assessments. Efforts to meet the requirements of the law may include:

·         Aligning curriculum, instruction and teacher training with high quality academic assessments

·         Meeting the educational needs of low-achieving children

·         Closing the achievement gap between high- and low-performing children

·         Accountability for improving the achievement of all students

·         Using state assessments to improve instruction

·         Increase the amount of quality instruction time

·         Utilizing scientifically based instructional strategies and challenging academic content.

·         Professional development for staff

·         Coordinating services to youth, children and families

·         Allowing parents substantial and meaningful opportunities to participate in the education of their children.

 
 TITLE II

The purpose of ESEA Title II, Part A is to help states and school districts ensure that all students have effective teachers; that is, teachers with the subject-matter knowledge and teaching skills necessary to help all children achieve to high academic standards, regardless of individual learning styles or needs. In this regard, the program provides substantial funding to help states and districts recruit, train, reward, and retain effective teachers. Title II, Part A and Title I, Part A also place particular emphasis on the need for states and districts to ensure that teachers of core academic subjects meet certain minimum requirements to become effective educators. 

 
TITLE III

Title III is responsible for the oversight of the language instruction of limited-English proficient and immigrant students. This is accomplished by: administering grant programs that help children develop proficiency in English and achieve high content standards; recommending policies and promoting best practices for meeting the needs of English language learners; strengthening collaboration and coordination among federal, state, and local programs serving English language learners; and monitoring funded programs and providing technical assistance that addresses outcomes and accountability.
