Title I is a part of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).  This act provides federal funds through the Georgia Department of Education to local educational agencies and public schools with high numbers or percentages of poor children to help ensure that all children meet challenging state academic content and student academic achievement standards.

Local Educational Agencies target the Title I funds they receive to public schools with the highest percentages of children from low-income families. Title I is designed to support state and local school reform efforts tied to challenging state academic standards in order to reinforce and enhance efforts to improve teaching and learning for students. Title I programs must be based on effective means of improving student achievement and include strategies to support parental involvement.

All Gilmer County Schools' elementary and middle schools receive Title I funds.
