ESEA Title I/Title III Parent Information
The Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) was established in 1965 as part of President Lyndon B. Johnson’s “War on Poverty." It is the largest elementary and secondary education assistance program.
The Title I, Part A program provides federal supplemental funds of over $14 billion for students in schools with concentrations of low income students. In FRHSD, Freehold High School and Freehold Township High School receive federal funding. Please find important information below for parents of Title I students.
Title III, Part A funds language instruction for Limited English Proficient and immigrant students. The district’s English as a Second Language (ESL) program is housed at Colts Neck High School. Please find important information below for parents of Title III students.
During school year 2013-2014, Freehold Regional High School District will operate two targeted Title I assistance programs, Freehold High School and Freehold Township High School. A Title I targeted assistance program focuses services to only a specific group of identified students. A key principle of a targeted assistance school is that Title I services provided for the identified students must be supplementary to the regular educational program. A targeted assistance program must include eight components outlined in the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, Title I Part A. The program must:
- assist students in reaching state standards
- ensure appropriate planning
- use instructional strategies effectively by minimizing pull-out and offering in-class support or extended day and summer programs
- coordinate with and support regular education programs such as pupil services (counseling, mentoring) and transition programs
- offer instruction by highly qualified staff
- provide professional development to Title I teaching staff
- use strategies to increase parental involvement
