Purpose: Under the recent legislation of No Child Left Behind (NCLB), Title I, Part A is supplemental funding to support high poverty schools in providing opportunities for children to acquire the knowledge and skills in the State content standards and to meet the challenging State performance standards developed for all children. These funds are meant to supplement, not supplant regular education funds.In addition to serving students in public school, districts are obliged to serve students who would be eligible in the public school, but are attending non-public schools. Districts must also serve students in the facilities for Neglected and Delinquent children with Title I funds.

Types of Programs: Title I, Part A funds may be used in a Schoolwide model or a Targeted Assistance model.
A schoolwide program allows the use of Title I funds to upgrade the entire educational program to meet the educational needs of all students in a school. In Northside this option is made available to campuses with a poverty threshold greater than 50%. The threshold is reviewed each year during the planning cycle.
A targeted assistance model supports only identified students meeting certain criteria.

For 2013-2014, Northside I.S.D.has 42 Title 1 schoolwide campuses and no targeted assistance campuses.

Accountability: Under the accountability provisions in No Child Left Behind (NCLB), states, school districts and campuses are evaluated annually for Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) . The Texas AYP Plan meets the requirements of NCLB and maintains the integrity of the Texas Assessment program.
Services:Programs/activities supported, all or partially, by Title I funds are:
