Helping disadvantaged students to achieve the academic standards expected of all children is the purpose of programs supported through the Office of Student Achievement and School Accountability (also known as Title I).
SASA supports the comprehensive state and local reform of teaching and learning. The emphasis is on high academic standards supported by aligned curriculum, assessment, and professional development to ensure that those students most at risk have the opportunity to succeed.
Funds may be used to create opportunities which extend learning time, minimize pull-out programs that remove children from the classroom, support instructional programs of advanced rather than rote skills, implement accelerated curriculum strategies rather than remedial drill and practice, and use effective strategies based on research.
It is our desire to provide you with useful and timely information about the programs we administer, funding information, technical assistance, and resources to support these programs. We appreciate and welcome your thoughts.
If you have specific questions, please contact your child's school or the Federal Projects Office, (208)
