The 2006 reauthorization of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) put significant emphasis, and funds, towards helping students in kindergarten through 3rd grade who are not identified as needing special education, but who do need additional academic and behavioral support to succeed in a general education environment. The Act introduced a framework called Response to Intervention, or RTI, that is based on the fact that in many cases, students needed to fall behind significantly before they could receive special learning services. The perceived need for the student to display an “ability-achievement” gap could result in unwarranted delays.
IDEA allows local education agencies to allocate up to 15% of their special education funds for programs and professional development in order for teachers to deliver interventions, including scientifically-based literacy instruction, and it provides for educational and behavioral evaluations, services, and support.
Title I provides financial assistance to schools with high numbers or high percentages of poor children to help ensure that all children meet challenging state academic standards.
Reading First is a nationwide effort to enable all students to become successful early readers. Funds are dedicated to help states and local school districts eliminate the reading deficit by establishing high-quality, comprehensive reading instruction in kindergarten through grade 3.
Early Reading First
Early Reading First is designed to transform early education programs into centers of excellence that provide high-quality early education to young children, especially those from low-income families. The Early Reading First Program prepares children to enter kindergarten with the language, cognitive, and early reading skills to ensure academic success.
21st Century Community Learning Centers
21st Century Community Learning Centers programs provide expanded academic enrichment opportunities for children attending low performing schools. Tutorial services and academic enrichment activities are designed to help students meet local and state academic standards in subjects such as reading and math.
Comprehensive School Reform (CSR)
The CSR Program is designed to raise student achievement by employing proven methods and strategies to produce comprehensive school reform. This program helps to expand the quality and quantity of schoolwide reform efforts that enable all children, particularly low-achieving children, to meet challenging academic standards.
English Language Acquisition Grants (Title III)
English Language Acquistion Grants are designed to improve the education of limited English proficient (LEP) children and youths by helping them learn English and meet challenging state academic content and student academic achievement standards. The program provides enhanced instructional opportunities for immigrant children and youths. Funds are distributed to states based on a formula that takes into account the number of immigrant and LEP students in each state.
Enhancing Education Through Technology
The Ed-Tech Program’s goal is to improve student academic achievement through the use of technology in schools and ensure that every student is technologically literate by the end of eighth grade. Ed-Tech programs also encourage the integration of technology with teacher training and curriculum development to establish successful research-based instructional methods.
