Federal Funds

Title I

Title I, the cornerstone of the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB), is the largest federal education program. It provides financial assistance to schools with high numbers or high percentages of students from low-income families to help ensure that all children have the opportunity to obtain a high quality education and reach proficiency on challenging state academic standards and assessments.

Title I, initiated by the passage of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, provides federal funding for schools to help students who are behind academically or at risk of falling behind. Services can include: hiring teachers to reduce class size, tutoring, computer labs, parental involvement activities, professional development, pre-kindergarten programs, and hiring teacher assistants.

Cabot Public School District currently has four Title I schools:

  • Central Elementary

  • Northside Elementary

  • Ward Central Elementary

  • Westside Elementary

Title IIA

The purpose of Title IIA is to increase the academic achievement of all students by helping school districts improve teacher and principal quality. Because each community may face a variety of challenges with respect to teacher quality, this program allows funds to be used for a wide array of intervention programs. Title IIA will fund training for teachers, administrators, and paraprofessionals, as well as materials associated with training. All activities supported with Title IIA funds must be a review of scientifically-based research that shows how such interventions are expected to improve student achievement. Schools must:

  • Ensure that activities are aligned with common core state standards and explain how selected programs will result in improvements to student academic achievement

  • Coordinate the program with other professional development programs

  • Develop professional development activities in a collaborative fashion and seek the input of teachers, principals, parents, administrators, paraprofessionals, and other school personnel

Title III

Title III: Language Instruction for Limited English Proficient and Immigrant Students

Title III funding is provided to help ensure that children who are limited English proficient, including immigrant children and youth:

  • Attain English proficiency

  • Develop high levels of academic attainment in English

  • Meet the same challenging state academic content and student academic achievement standards, in core academic subjects, as all children are expected to meet


Title III funding is also used to provide community participation programs, family literacy services, and parent outreach and training activities to limited English proficient children and their families.
