Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, a federal law, provides funding to states to improve the academic achievement of disadvantaged students. Students in temporary housing are categorically eligible for services under Title I, even if they do not live in a Title I school attendance area or match the academic standards required of other children with Title I eligibility. Beginning in the 2017-2018 academic year, all Local Educational Agencies (LEAs, including school districts, charter schools, and BOCES) must set aside a portion of their Title I, Part A funds to provide services to students in temporary housing.
