Every Student Succeeds Act
Title I is a federally funded program which provides supplemental funds to schools to assist eligible students to meet their educational goals. The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) of 2016, reauthorizes the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), the nation’s education law and longstanding commitment to equal opportunity for all students. Naperville Community Unit School District 203’s Title I program focuses on early intervention at the elementary and middle school level.

How are the funds used?
These funds can be applied to instructional activities, counseling, parental involvement, increased staffing, and program improvement. Title I is not a standalone program, but is coordinated with other district, state and federal programs to drive improved achievement in the schools. Title I funding has been applied to extensive professional development for teachers, resource purchases, personnel, and a variety of parent and family programs.
