Title I, Part A
Title I, Part A-Improving Basic Programs
Title I, Part A of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), as
amended by the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB), provides supplemental funding to state and local education agencies. This funding is for resources to help schools with high concentrations of students from low-income families provide a high-quality education that will enable all children to meet the state's student performance standards. Currently, Hutto ISD receives Title I, Part A funding.
Title I Funding:
- Determined by number of low-income students in the district (census data)
- Districts allocate their funds to schools based on the poverty level (free/reduced meal status)
-Schoolwide Program > than 40% poverty
-Targeted Assisted Program
- Schools serve the lowest-performing students to help them achieve academically (at-risk students)
- Provides supplemental programs and services
Title I, Part A program provides support to schools in implementing either a school-wide program or a targeted assistance program and requires that these programs use effective methods and instructional strategies that are grounded in scientifically based research. A Schoolwide Program improves the academic performance of low-achieving students and all other students in the school by working to improve the entire educational program. In contrast, a Targeted Assisted Program improves the academic performance of identified low achieving students.

Campus Improvement Plans
Campus Improvement Plan
Texas Education Code 11.253 (c) requires each school year, the principal of each school campus, with the assistance of the campus-level committee, shall develop, review, and revise the campus improvement plan for the purpose of improving student performance for all student populations with respect to the student achievement indicators and any other appropriate performance measures for special needs populations.
In Hutto ISD, each campus forms a Campus Site-Based Committee that sets the campus's educational objectives, consistent with the District Improvement Plan. In accordance with state and federal law, this Campus Improvement Plan is a one year plan that records how resources and time will be allocated in the school year to meet the determined District goals. The Campus Committee consists of representation from the community, parents and staff.
