Title 1 started with the passage of the elementary and secondary education act of 1965. Its aim is to help ensure that all children have equal access to quality education with the chance to reach grade level proficiency. Title I, Part A is a part of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB). This act provides federal funds through the Georgia Department of Education to local educational agencies (LEAs) and public schools with high percentages of poor children to help ensure that all children meet challenging State academic content and student academic achievement standards.
John Johnson Elementary School is a Title 1 school. This means JJE receives Title 1 money, the largest single federal funding source ever passed by Congress for education. About 1100 schools in Georgia use Title 1 funding school-wide and about 200 schools use the funding for Targeted Assistance Title 1 programs.
Title 1 funds help students in several ways. Services can include hiring teachers to reduce class size, tutoring, computer labs, parent involvement activities, professional development, purchasing materials and supplies, and hiring paraprofessionals.
