Title I is the federal education law that provides funding to elementary and secondary schools for programs and services to help economically disadvantaged students to succeed.

The purpose of Title I is to ensure that all students have an equal opportunity to reach State learning standards. Title I is intended to help close the gap in academic achievement between students in different ethnic and income groups.

Title I was first enacted in 1965 as part of the “War on Poverty.” It was part of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) to ensure equal educational opportunities for all children. Its purpose was to close the achievement gap between poor and affluent children by providing additional resources to schools serving disadvantaged students.

The Title I School-Based Support program serves students in Clark County School District Title I-eligible schools. Title I School-Based Support works directly with district administration and staff to develop and implement each school’s Title I plan. Technical and administrative support is provided to each school to ensure that the Title I plan supports the school’s plan for academic improvement. Title I ensures that each school complies with all federal, state, and district regulations that govern the use of Title I funds.

    Services provided to Title I schools include:
    • Technical assistance to school-based personnel in the development and implementation of Title I budgets.
    • Technical assistance in the identification of scientific, research-based curriculum and technology for the Title I program.
    • Technical assistance in the development and implementation of a Parent Involvement Policy in compliance with the regulations of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA).
    • Technical assistance with required paperwork for the expenditure of Title I funds.
    • Monitoring of Title I plans to ensure compliance with Federal, State and District regulations.
    • Technical assistance to teachers and support staff regarding curriculum technology, teaching techniques, and instructional strategies to increase student achievement.
    • Collaboration with Performance Zones and District staff to assist schools with the implementation of District achievement goals.
    • Yearly review, in collaboration with the School Improvement Department, of School Performance Plans to ensure compliance with the ESEA.

CCSD Supplement Not Supplant Methodology

Regardless of a school’s Title I designation, the basic allocation is based on total enrollment counts for each school, as if the state and local funds are the only monies that school is receiving. Each school is also given additional allocations for other needs (technology, supplies, etc.). As a result, all schools are treated the same whether or not these schools are Title I-A served.

Mission Statement

The Title I Homeless Outreach Program for Education (HOPE) of the Clark County School District works to remove barriers for students experiencing homelessness, to enroll in school and educate school personnel, parents, and unaccompanied youth of the educational options under McKinney-Vento Federal Law.

Students experiencing homelessness are those who lack a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence, which includes the following:

    • Living with friends or relatives due to loss of housing, economic hardship, or a similar reason;
    • Living in a hotel or motel due to lack of alternative accommodations;
    • Living in an emergency or transitional shelter;
    • Living in a car, park, on the street, or similar settings.

Student services include:

    • Immediate enrollment in school
    • Free school breakfast and lunch
    • Backpacks with school supplies and toiletries
    • Transportation to school of origin
      • Should a student become homeless, at parental request, the student is entitled to receive transportation to his or her school of origin or last school attended, if the school is two miles or more from the student’s current address
    • Emergency clothing
      • CCSD, in partnership with the Assistance League of Las Vegas, provide clothing to students once a year
      • Operation School Bell is available to elementary and middle school students on a referral basis

Family Engagement under the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA)

ESSA calls for school districts to offer programs and activities in order to involve parents and family members in their child’s school. Additionally, all Title I schools must develop, with parents input, a written parent and family engagement policy, and reserve at least 1% of its Title I funds to support parent and family engagement activities.


Parenting Programs

The Family Engagement Department implements strategies using best practices to assist schools in creating organizational conditions that foster trusting relationships with families and caregivers. Strong relationships with families and high impact family engagement will establish a sustainable culture of engagement, improve school attendance and increase student outcomes. Offering families digital learning opportunities will build family efficacy and confidence in navigating the school system. The Family Engagement Department provides Title I families of CCSD the necessary tools to best support their children’s academic and social-emotional progress.

  • University of Family Learning: The Family Engagement Department implements the University of Family Learning (UFL), which provides families with educational resources and support through classes and workshops focused on parents as teaching partners, navigating the school system, family wellness and development and involvement, leadership and advocacy. Classes are offered at the ten Title I Family Engagement Centers. Courses and workshops were adapted to support families and students with social-emotional support, attendance, and accessing technology.
  • Title I Family Engagement Centers: Title I Family Engagement Centers are strategically located in nine Title I elementary schools and one Title I middle school to serve the families of CCSD. In collaboration with community and District partners, the centers provide opportunities to improve family capabilities and establish and nurture relationships with one common goal - student academic achievement. These resources include support with technology, English classes for adults, early childhood learning, academically-focused workshops and social emotional learning.

We look forward to partnering with you in support of the students of CCSD.
