    Title I is a federal program under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). Title I covers the fiscal and program requirements for improving the academic achievement of students who attend schools eligible for Title I. The purpose of Title I is to ensure that all children have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach, at a minimum, proficiency on challenging state academic achievement standards and state academic assessments.
