Title I is a component of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965. This Act was part of President Lyndon Johnson's War on Poverty. Its purpose is to help students who are at a disadvantage reach high standards and provide them with instructional support. This Act has been re-authorized over the years. The most recent reauthorization was in 2001. President Bush re-authorized it as the No Child Left Behind Act or NCLB. In the Clinton-Glen Gardner School District, our Title I funds provide help for our students through the Academic Support Program.
