Title 1 Program

  • Title 1 Targeted Assistance Programs

    Federal Title 1 funds supplement state education funds to help the district further support students at greatest risk of not meeting rigorous state standards.  These programs must use effective methods and instructional strategies that are grounded in scientifically based research to provide services for students. In Liberty Hill Independent School District, we have three Targeted Assistance campuses serving students in need of intensive, targeted intervention support in building a foundation of reading or math in grades K-2.

    ESSA

    The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) was signed into law in December of 2015.  ESSA is a reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA) and replaces the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB).

    ESSA offers districts more flexibility for using federal funds to effectively implement comprehensive, research-based initiatives that maximize student academic outcomes, particularly for those students at risk of not meeting challenging state academic assessment standards.

    ESSA follows the US Department of Education's emphasis on comprehensive needs assessments and improvement planning.  This legislation increases district responsibility for monitoring student outcomes, coordinated use of federal funds, and for offering high-quality guidance and technical assistance to schools engaged in continuous improvement planning.

    Visit the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) websitefor additional information.
