The No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act of 2001 reauthorized the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA). Title I, Part A, Improving the Academic Achievement of the Disadvantaged, “is intended to help insure that all children have the opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach proficiency on challenging state academic standards and assignments.”
In Owsley County, the Title I program works to help Owsley County High School and Owsley County Elementary School meet Kentucky's learning goals, attain Kentucky's academic core concepts, coordinate resources to improve education for all students and support school reform efforts.
Title I district money provides technical assistance to the schools and professional development for all staff. Title I funds also may be used for additional instructional staff, extended-time programs and other means of raising student achievement in high-poverty schools.
