Thus, for the purposes of this figure, Special Grants are considered to be the same program as Concentration Grants. The various subdivisions of the ESEA are designated as titles, followed by a Roman numeral designation. As with the original Basic Grant formula, grant amounts under each formula in current law are generally determined by multiplying a "formula child count," consisting primarily of estimated numbers of school-age children in poor families, by an "expenditure factor" based on state APPE.

Since FY, every formula under the program has included some type of population factor and expenditure factor. As a result, Congress retained the Basic Grant FY state grant minimum provisions and the provisions prioritizing funding for state agency programs over Basic Grants included in the amendments.

As with the state minimum grant provision, LEAs that receive grants in excess of their hold harmless amount have their grant amounts reduced to provide other LEAs with a hold harmless grant amount.

Due to the resolution of the segregation and private school issues, the ESEA passed through Congress relatively quickly. Around half of the states received more in FY than in FY In addition, both types of provisions have been used to gain support for changes to the Title I-A formulas by helping to mitigate any losses that may result from the changes. This level of funding is commonly referred to as full funding for the Title I-A program. This triggered an increased development of bilingual programs in New York public schools. In its original conception, Title I was designed to close the skill gap in reading, writing, and mathematics between children from low-income households who attend urban or rural school systems and children from the middle-class who attend suburban school systems Jeffrey, Basic Grants The amendments did not make substantial changes to the Basic Grant formula due, in part, to the funding level for the program. It also had two new provisions: program improvement and schoolwide projects. Thus, the EFIG formula incorporates state spending on public K education in three ways expenditure, equity, and effort factors , while the other three formulas account for it only through an expenditure factor.

The Title I-A formulas have somewhat distinct allocation patterns, providing varying shares of allocated funds to different types of LEAs or states e. Each educational institution requesting these grants must submit an application that describes how these funds will be used in restructuring their school for academic improvement.

As previously discussed, there were issues related to how to count poor and other disadvantaged children and how to factor in state spending on public K education when determining grant amounts. The additions called for synchrony between Chapter I and classroom instruction, a raise in the achievement standard for low-income students by emphasizing advanced skills rather than basic ones, and increased parental involvement.

Due to the resolution of the segregation and private school issues, the ESEA passed through Congress relatively quickly. This includes support programs for libraries, scientific research leading to state and local educational agencies to put promising reforms into place, as well as for programs to improve teacher performance.

As with the original Basic Grant formula, grant amounts under each formula in current law are generally determined by multiplying a "formula child count," consisting primarily of estimated numbers of school-age children in poor families, by an "expenditure factor" based on state APPE. Figure 1. The IASA attempted to coordinate federal resources and policies with the preexisting efforts at the state and local levels to improve instruction for all students. These provisions have also been included in formulas to mitigate losses to states and LEAs that may result from changes in the Title I-A formula factors. Since FY, every formula under the program has included some type of population factor and expenditure factor. Congress has also modified the Title I-A allocation formulas over time to include hold harmless provisions to prevent LEAs from receiving less than a certain amount of funding from year-to-year, provided appropriations are sufficient to make hold harmless payments. In Encyclopedia of Educational Reform and Dissent. Title I-A grants provide supplementary educational and related services to low-achieving and other students attending elementary and secondary schools with relatively high concentrations of students from low-income families. That is, Congress has tried to target funds to areas with higher concentrations of poverty, first through the Concentration Grant formula, which provided supplemental funds to areas with a high number or percentage of children from low-income families; and later through the Targeted Grant and EFIG formulas, which provide more funding per formula child i. While NCLB helped in closing achievement gaps and mandating transparency, it also had several problematic results. This reauthorization required increased accountability from schools both from the teachers and from the students. Department of Education. Under current law, two formula child weighting scales are used in the determination of grants under the Targeted Grant and EFIG formulas: one based on formula child rates determined by dividing an LEA's number of formula children by the number of children ages residing in the LEA , the other based on formula child counts.

Funding is distributed first to state educational agencies SEAs which then allocate funds to local educational agencies LEA's which in turn dispense funds to public schools in need. A small change was also made to the calculation of the state reservation for administration.
