Title I, Part A of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, a federal law, provides funding to schools with high numbers or high percentages of students from low-income families. Students in temporary housing are categorically eligible for services under Title I, even if they do not attend a Title I school or match the academic standards required of other children for eligibility. In addition, school districts and charter schools that get Title I funding must set aside a portion of the funds to meet the unique needs of students in temporary housing.
