The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) is a law ensuring services to children with disabilities throughout the nation. IDEA governs how states and public agencies provide early intervention, special education and related services to more than 6.5 million eligible infants, toddlers, children and youth with disabilities. Each public school child who receives special education and related services must have an Individualized Education Program (IEP).
The IEP must include:
- Students' current academic level of achievement
- A statement of measurable annual goals
- How the student will reach these goals
Improving Basic Programs Operated by Local Educational Agencies (Title I, Part A) is a federal program that provides financial assistance to local school systems and schools with high percentages of poor children. The funds are used to support the academic achievement of disadvantaged students. Title I funds are distributed to high poverty districts and schools so additional academic support and learning opportunities can be provided that will help low-achieving children master challenging curricula and meet state standards in core academic subjects. Title I funds are used for extra instruction in reading and mathematics, additional teacher resources, as well as after-school and summer programs that extend and reinforce the regular school curriculum.
