• Title I, Part A: Improving Basic Programs


    Title I, which is part of Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), is the largest federal elementary and secondary education program in the U.S. Title I funds help to improve teaching and learning for thousands of New York State students in economically disadvantaged communities.

    Under Title I, the RCSD has been identified as a Focus District, which means that while schools have made some improvement, there are still schools that are not meeting performance standards in ELA and Math. These schools are Focus and Priority Schools. As a Focus District, the RCSD must:
    • provide additional technical assistance to schools
    • reserve 1% of its Title I allocation to promote parent/family engagement
    • collaborate with school staff and parents to develop a District Comprehensive Improvement Plan
