The Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) is a United States federal statute originally enacted in 1965. These federal funds are authorized for supplemental professional development, instructional materials, resources to support educational programs, as well as parent and family engagement programs. The current reauthorization of ESEA is the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).
Coppell ISD receives funding for the following entitlement programs within the Elementary and Secondary Education Act.
Purpose of the District and Campus Improvement Plan
Title I is a federally funded grant program, part of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) of 1965. ESEA was reauthorized by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). Title I, Part A provides supplemental funding for resources to help schools with high concentrations of students from low-income families provide a high-quality education that will enable all children to meet the state’s student performance standards. Title I, Part A supports schools in implementing either a schoolwide program or a targeted assistance program. These programs must use effective methods and instructional strategies that are grounded in scientifically based research.
The program is designed to accomplish four primary goals:
Under ESEA rules, for a school to qualify as a Title I Schoolwide program, the campus must have a student population of at least 40% or more that are economically disadvantaged (i.e. students who qualify for free or reduced meals). Coppell ISD has applied for and received an Ed-Flex waiver to this rule, which allows the district to receive and distribute Title I funds based on economically disadvantaged student enrollment.
Coppell ISD currently has 5 schools that are served as Title I Schoolwide Campuses.
Each of these schools is given an allocation of Title I Part A funds through a specified formula. The school must spend those funds on strategies that will directly impact student instruction (such as academic interventions, instructional programs, supplemental teachers, etc.), professional development training for teachers, and Parent and Family Engagement activities.
All activities and/or resources paid with Title I, Part A funds must be:
Title II, Part A: Supporting Effective Instruction provides supplemental funding to improve student achievement. The funds are used to elevate teacher and principal quality through recruitment, hiring and retention strategies, and to increase the number of highly qualified teachers in the classroom and highly qualified principals and assistant principals in schools. The program uses scientifically based professional development interventions and holds districts and schools accountable for improvements in student academic performance.
