Title I, Part A: Improving the Academic Achievement of the Disadvantaged
Title I, Part A, provides local educational agencies (LEA) resources that help children gain a high-quality education and the skills to master the Florida Standards.

Two models are used in Title I schools to provide these services. Schoolwide reform models provide all students with access to services. Targeted assistance models provide services to select students in Title I schools.

IDEA, The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act
The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) is a law that makes available a free appropriate public education to eligible children with disabilities throughout the nation and ensures special education and related services to those children.
The School districts have an obligation to ensure that parentally placed private school students have the opportunity to participate in programs assisted or carried out under Part B of the IDEA.
The services offered are determined after timely and meaningful consultation with representatives of non-profit private schools and parents regarding the needs of eligible students. These services are offered to ensure that educators and parents have the necessary tools to improve educational results for children with disabilities by supporting system improvement activities; coordinated research and personnel preparation; coordinated technical assistance, dissemination, and support; and technology development and media services.
Our eligible ESE students receive direct academic instructional support. Their teachers receive support facilitation, professional development, and consultation. Their classrooms are equipped with assistive technology.
