Title I services are made possible by federal funding that is set aside to states under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA). The purpose of this law is to improve educational opportunities in schools with high concentrations of poverty.
The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) was signed by President Obama on December 10, 2015. This measure reauthorizes the nation’s national education law and longstanding commitment to equal opportunity for all students. The new law builds on key areas of progress, including;
- Advancing equity to disadvantaged and high-need students.
Requires that all students be taught to high academic standards.
Ensures that vital information is provided to educators, families, students, and communities through statewide assessments.
- Helps to support and grow local innovations,
- Sustains and expands historic investments in increasing access to high-quality preschool.
- Maintains an expectation that there will be accountability and action to effect positive change in the lowest-performing schools, where groups of students are not making progress, and where graduation rates are low over extended periods of time.

The key to improving academic achievement and supporting student success is ensuring that all students have access to an effective teacher in every classroom and effective school leaders in every school. Research demonstrates that teacher effectiveness contributes more to improving student academic outcomes than any other school characteristic and that effective school leaders are essential to recruiting and supporting teachers and leading school improvement.
The reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) provides opportunities for state and local entities to use Title II funding in even more effective and innovative ways to help improve teacher and leader quality and ultimately increase student success.
