Improving the Academic Achievement of Disadvantaged Students

Title I, Part A of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA) supports reforms and innovations to improve educational opportunities for low income students. The No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB), a reauthorization of ESEA, was signed into law on January 8, 2002 and represents the most significant changes to educational policy in over 35 years. On December 10, 2015, President Obama signed into law the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) which again reauthorized ESEA.

ESSA includes provisions that broaden the definitions of educational excellence, while maintaining critical civil rights for all students. In addition, ESSA includes provisions designed to focus on providing students the diverse, integrated curriculum and learning experiences necessary for a well-rounded education. Title I, Part A of ESSA is designed to provide all children a significant opportunity to receive a fair, equitable, and high-quality education, and to close educational achievement gaps.

Title IV of ESSA includes the 21st Century Community Learning Centers (CCLC). The 21st CCLC program provides before and after-school services to children and their families, including academic and personal enrichment activities, designed to help students meet performance standards in core academic subjects.   

Seminole County Public Schools (SCPS) receives an annual allocation of federal dollars to provide supplemental resources to schools that have high percentages of children who qualify for free or reduced-priced lunch.  ESSA and Florida law determine the eligibility of schools and how funds are allocated to eligible schools and programs. 

Currently, 13 elementary schools, five middle schools, three special centers, one charter school and 13 non-public schools are receiving supplemental resources through Title I, Part A.

Parents’ Rights:

All Title I schools are required to employ only state-certified teachers and highly-qualified instructional paraprofessionals. If at any time your child is taught by teacher who is not certified, your school will notify you. In addition, you have the right to:

  • Request whether your child’s teacher and/or paraprofessional meet the state certification or qualification requirements for the grade levels and subject areas in which they provide instruction.
  • Request whether a teacher and/or paraprofessional is teaching under emergency or other provisional status where state qualification or licensing criteria have been waived.
  • Request information on the baccalaureate degree major of a teacher and/or paraprofessional and any other graduate certification or degree held by the teacher and/or paraprofessional, and the field of discipline of the certification or degree. If you would like to receive this information, please contact your child’s school.
