Elementary and Secondary Education Act (Title I)

The NCLB Title I - Improving the Academic Achievement of the Disadvantaged is the largest single program of federal aid for elementary and secondary education. Decisions on the use of Title I funds are focused on needs at the school level within general guidelines from the state and district level. The critical element of the law is accountability which requires educators to show results for their efforts rather than mere compliance with program rules.

Title I is dedicated to improving the educational opportunities for all students by helping them:

-succeed in the regular program;
-attain grade-level proficiency;
-improve academic achievement.

Schools which have a high percentage of children qualifying for free or reduced priced meals receive an allocation of federal dollars. This allocation is used to pay for resources to support the purpose of Title I and the goals of the school's School Improvement Plan. These funds must also be used to provide services to homeless children, children in local institutions for neglected children and to ensure that private schools receive "equitable services".

Hawkins County Schools has sixteen schools which receive Title I funds. Those schools are:


  • Bulls Gap School
