Title I Flyer 23-24


What is Title I?

The purpose of Title I, Part A is to provide resources to schools and districts to ensure that all children have a fair, equitable, and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and close educational achievement gaps.

Title I, Part A is the largest federal program supporting both elementary and secondary education. The program's resources are allocated based upon the poverty rate.

Title I, Part A is intended to support local education agencies in:

  • Improving teaching by promoting effective instruction for at-risk children and for enriched and accelerated programs;
  • Encouraging school-based improvement planning:
  • Establishing accountability based on results;
  • Promoting meaningful parent and family engagement;
  • Coordinating with health and social services agencies.

Monitoring of federal programs is conducted to ensure that: (1) every child has a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education; (2) programs comply with federal requirements that are most closely related to positive outcomes for students; and (3) taxpayer dollars are administered and used in accordance with how Congress and the United States Department of Education intended.

ESSA State and Local Report Requirements

The Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), requires that each State Educational Agency (SEA) and each Local Educational Agency (LEA) that receives Title I funds prepare and disseminate an annual report, which includes information for the SEA and LEA as a whole and for each school served by the LEA. State and Local reports must include information related to a wide variety of student and school performance metrics, accountability, and per-pupil expenditures, as well as any other information that the SEA or LEA deems relevant. ESSA requires that the reports be concise and presented in an understandable and uniform format accessible to the public on the LEA’s website.


To assist LEAs in meeting this requirement, the Colorado Department of Education (CDE) has developed an interactive dashboard which presents school-, district-, and state-level information for each of the required elements. The ESSA Local Reports Webpage currently contains data from the 2021-22 school year, but will be updated to include 2022-23 school year data by the end of the calendar year. LEAs can link to this webpage to meet their requirements and/or may develop their own local reports. LEA that opt to create their own report cards must send the link to the report card to CDE.


For more information, please contact Tina Negley or visit the ESSA State Reports Webpage and ESSA Local Reports Webpage.
