Title I - Part A - Basic Programs
Title I, Part A of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA) provides local educational agencies (LEAs, or school districts) with extra resources to help improve instruction in high-poverty schools and ensure that poor and minority children have the same opportunity as other children to meet challenging State academic standards. The “No Child Left Behind Act of 2001” (NCLB) reauthorizes the ESEA and incorporates nearly all of the major reforms especially in the areas of assessment, accountability, and school improvement. The new law requires States to develop standards in reading and math, and assessments linked to those standards for all students in grades 3-8. Local schools districts can only use Title I funds for activities that scientifically based researched to be highly effective in helping all students meet these State standards. The Title I Elementary Schools in Hobbs are: Coronado, Edison, Jefferson, Southern Heights, Taylor, Will Rogers, and B.T. Washington.
