The purpose of Title I-Improving the Academic Achievement of the Disadvantaged of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) (signed into law on December 10, 2015, replacing No Child Left Behind) is to "provide all children significant opportunity to receive a fair, equitable, and high-quality education, and to close educational achievement gaps". Title I provides technical assistance, service and support to local educational agencies (LEAs) and schools to help ensure every child has access to an excellent education.
The Comprehensive Needs Assessment, Root Cause Analysis, and Integrated Action Plan for all Title I Schools includes Title I, II, III, IV School Improvement and Move on When Reading. Schools will use the 6 Principles, Indicators and Elements to identify strengths and needs in order to increase student achievement and strengthen school systems leading to sustainable improvement. The primary needs identified in the Comprehensive Needs Assessment become the foundation for the Schools Integrated Action Plan. The LEA Integrated Action Plan is based on the Schools’ Comprehensive Needs Assessment findings. It supports the implementation of the School Integrated Action Plan.
