    The purpose of Title I, Part A [funding] is to ensure that all children have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach, at a minimum, proficiency on challenging State academic achievement standards and state academic assessments.

    The purpose of Title II, Part A is to provide grants to increase student academic achievement through strategies such as improving teacher and principal quality and increasing the number of highly qualified teachers in the classroom and highly qualified principals and assistant principals in schools; and hold local educational agencies and schools accountable for improvements in student academic achievement.
    The purpose of Title III, Part A is to ensure that children who are English language learners (ELLs), including immigrant children and youth, attain English proficiency, reach high levels of academic achievement, and meet the same challenging State academic content and student academic achievement standards as are expected of their English-speaking peers.

    The goal of state compensatory education is to reduce any disparity in performance on assessment instruments or disparity in the rates of high school completion between students at risk of dropping out of school and all other students (TEC Section 29.081).
