    Title I Committee of Practitioners


    Title I is a program created by the U.S. Department of Education to distribute funding to schools and school districts with a high percentage of students experiencing poverty. Title I was created in the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) in 1965, and was later amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). Within federal statute, specifically Section 1603(b) of ESEA as amended by ESSA, each state education agency that receives Title I funds must create a Committee of Practitioners (Committee), who advise the state in carrying out Title I programs and responsibilities. The Committee reviews all proposed or final state rules or regulations regarding Title I, provides advice and support in the implementation of Title I programs to ensure quality Title I services, and discusses issues and policies related to Title I within the state.
