- Title I, Part A
BASIC 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. The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) was signed into law in December 2015 as the update to the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965. ESSA replaces the previous update to the law, the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB).
The mission of Title I is to provide a continuum of services and resources to Title I districts and charter schools that enrich curriculum and instruction, promote interaction and coordination of supplementary services and resources, and result in excellence and high expectations for educators and students. Through collective efforts, we endeavor to increase accountability for all participants in the educational process; enhance cooperation between school and home; provide educators in Title I schools with greater autonomy for shared decision-making; and most importantly, promote increased educational performance of students attending Title I schools.

Update for the 2020-21 school year, the USDOE has approved the IDOE's request to allow LEAs who meet the requirements to utilize the more flexible state defined paraprofessional requirements for highly-qualified rather than the current federal requirements. See options for paraprofessional requirements here. LEAs must apply before being able to utilize additional flexibility. See additional information and the Ed-Flex Application as below:

- Para Requirements
On January 8, 2002, President Bush signed into law the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB). The law establishes new requirements for paraprofessionals in classrooms. Any instructional paraprofessional employed after January 8, 2002, must either have completed two years of college, hold a two-year degree, or pass a state or local assessment. Under the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), paraprofessionals must continue to meet the federal standards used under NCLB.
Complete information can be found in the Non-Regulatory Guidance issued by the US Department of Education.
For instructional paraprofessionals in Indiana districts and schools receiving Title I funds, Indiana is adopting the ParaPro Assessment developed by the Educational Testing Service (ETS). Instructional Assistants with less than two years of college will be required to successfully complete this assessment. Additional information regarding the test, including registration materials, can be found on the ETS website.

Title I, Part C Migrant Education Program (MEP) of the Every Student Succeeds Act supports high quality education programs for migratory children (ages 3-21) and helps ensure that migratory children who move among the states are not penalized in any manner by disparities among states in curriculum, graduation requirements, or state academic content and student academic achievement standards. The MEP is designed to help migratory children overcome educational disruption, cultural and language barriers, social isolation, various health-related problems, and other factors that inhibit the ability of such children to do well in school, and to prepare such children to make a successful transition to postsecondary education or employment.
