According to "U.S. Department Of Education "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."
In our district the Bilingual Program is funded through Title I and these funds are designated for students who are English Language Learners. The funds are restricted to only LEP student; administrators may use these funds according so what he/she believes students would benefits from. Some of the ways our district utilizes these funds are to buy resources or programs that help the students acquire the English Language. Also, the highering of ELL teachers for the purpose to have smaller classes and to ensure the activities done in the classroom are focused on preparing the students in their future come from this federal fund. Field trip that ELL students attend is paid by this fund, this gives teachers an opportunity to explore meaningful places in which students can make a connection and be able to expand their knowledge in the English Language. Books and technology for the classroom are bought from this fund to have the necessary tools to enhance a teachers lesson and to better prepare the students.
Special Education is also funded by Title I and this helps ensure that the students who qualify for this special program are getting the necessary tools to excel. These funds cannot be spent on all the students due to the fact that the funds target students who have been identified by a diagnostician as having a learning disability. With these funds our district makes sure that the students are being provided with the necessary resources and preparations to learn. Some of the resources that our district provides with these funds for our SPED students are chromes, iPads, listening equipment, e-books, behavior interventions and support. The administrator is in charge of allocating the funds to the special programs and makes sure that the money is used according to the students needs.
Title 9 Edit
Title 9 programs are programs that protect "people from discrimination based on sex in education programs or activities that receive Federal financial assistance." Some of these funds are given by our district to our campuses to fund athletics. The program focuses on ensuring that the athletes have equal access to all sports and are not discriminated upon. With the state money administrators are able to purchase the necessary equipment that the sports need. If the funds provided are not enough then the administrator may allow fundraiser or designated personnel may sell tickets to come up with the money necessary. Our district follows Title 9 regulations to allows students to have to opportunity to explore the different sports that are available with the schools. Students are not afraid to try and learn from the different sports provided because the regulations are very strict and allow students feel comfortable in the variety of sports.
