NCLB Title Programs
In 2017, No Child Left Behind (NCLB) was replaced by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). For current content, see the ESSA webpage.
Note: While NCLB is no longer in place, certain NCLB guidance documents remain in effect. As we transition from NCLB to full implementation of ESSA, updated guidance will be available on the ESSA Guidance webpage.

Title V - Part A provides states and local school districts with resources for promoting innovative programs and informed parental choice, including charter schools.
Title VI provides states with resources for state assessment activities and local school districts with flexibility in the use of Title funds as well as additional funds for small, rural school districts (REAP).
Title IX - Homeless Education provides states and local school districts with resources to support appropriate services and programs for children and youth who are identified as being homeless. States must ensure that each homeless youth and child has equal access to the same free, appropriate public education, including a public preschool education, as other children and youth. States and districts are required to review and revise policies that may act as barriers to enrollment, attendance or success in school for homeless children and youth.
