Every Student Succeeds Act and Title 1
The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) was signed by President Obama on December 10, 2015. Under ESSA, the purpose of Title 1 is to provide all children significant opportunity to receive a fair, equitable, and high-quality education and to close educational gaps.
Title 1 provides federal dollars to help supplement educational opportunities for children who live in poverty areas and are most at risk of failing. Students are served based on educational need.
