Title I, Part A is a federal program that serves the unique needs of children — kindergarten to grade 12 — who struggle to learn. Title I programs and services provide customized instruction and curricula that helps these students meet academic standards and take an active, engaged interest in what they learn and can do. As the oldest and largest federal education program, Title I programs build equity of opportunity for children whose struggles often keep them on the academic sidelines.

Teachers in Title I buildings are required to be highly qualified at time of placement. Districts cannot use plans to document how teachers will become highly qualified. By law, schools must notify parents regarding the placement of a student in the classroom of a non-highly qualified teacher.
