Title IV, Part A- Student Support and Academic Enrichment

The purpose of the Title IV-A Program is to improve students' academic achievement by increasing the capacity of the LEA schools, and local communities to provide all students with access to a well-rounded education, improve school conditions for student learning and improve the use of technology in order to improve the academic achievement and digital literacy of all students.

The distribution of Title IV, Part A must be prioritized by the local educational agency or local education agency consortium to schools that:
• Are among the schools with the greatest need (as determined by the LEA);
• Have the highest percentages of low-income students;
• Are identified for comprehensive support and improvement;
• Have consistently underperforming subgroups;
• Are identified as a persistently dangerous public elementary school or secondary school under Section 8532.
