What is Title I?

Title l is a federal grant program that was originally designed to give education. assistance to students living in areas of high poverty. The Title l program originated in 1965 when Congress passed the Elementary and Secondary Education Act and was reauthorized in 2002 with the passage of the No Child Left Behind Act.

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) again reauthorized Title I as introduced in the Senate by Lamar Alexander (R-TN) on April 30, 2015.  ESSA was signed into law by President Barack Obama on December 10, 2015.  The purpose of this act was to replace and update the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) which was signed into law in 2002.  Like NCLB, ESSA reauthorized the Elementary and Secondary Act of 1965.

Every year, the school sends letters home with students who are assigned to any teacher who lacks a required certificate endorsement. OMS sent these letters home on September 9, 2021.
