Columbus Humanities, Arts and Technology Proudly Offers Exemplary Title 1 Programs
The Elementary and Secondary Education Act is a United States federal statute enacted April 11, 1965 which funds primary and secondary education. As mandated in the Act, funds are authorized for professional development, instructional materials, resources to support educational programs, and parental involvement promotion.
Title I of the Act is a set of programs set up by the United States Department of Education to distribute funding to schools and school districts with a high percentage of students from low-income families. To qualify as a Title I school, a school typically has around 40% or more of its students that come from families that qualify under the United States Census’s definitions as low-income, according to the U.S. Department of Education. Schools receiving Title I funding are regulated by federal legislation, including the No Child Left Behind Act.
The purpose of Title 1 is to ensure that all children have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach, at a minimum, proficiency on challenging state academic achievement standards.
Columbus Humanities Arts and Technology Academy offers three different programs for students through Title 1 funds. In order to become high achievers, students may qualify for and participate in:
- During school tutoring
- After school tutoring
- Summer school
