Every Student Succeeds

Elementary and Secondary Education Act

The Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) is a United States federal statute originally enacted in 1965. These federal funds are authorized for professional development, instructional materials, resources to support educational programs, and parental involvement programs. The current reauthorization of ESEA is the Every Student Succeeds Act of 2015.

Keller ISD receives funding for the following entitlement programs within the Elementary and Secondary Education Act:

  • Title I, Part A
  • Title I, Part C
  • Title II, Part A
  • Title III, Part A LEP
  • Title IV


Title I, Part A – Improving the Academic Achievement of the Disadvantaged

Program Coordinator – Leigh Cook – Director of State and Federal Programs 

Title I, Part A provides supplemental funding for resources to help schools with high concentrations of students from low-income families provide high-quality education that will enable all children to meet the state's student performance standards. These programs must use effective methods and instructional strategies that are grounded in scientifically-based research.

Keller ISD has ten schools that are served as Title I Schoolwide Campuses.

  • Basswood Elementary School
  • Bluebonnet Elementary School
  • Caprock Elementary School
  • Friendship Elementary School

Title I, Part C

This funding is designated specifically to support identified migrant students.  Since this population is small in KISD, we contract with Region 11 for services. 


Title II, Part A – Teacher Training and Recruiting

Program Coordinator – Leigh Cook – Director of State and Federal Programs 

Title II, Part A provides supplemental funding to improve student achievement. The funds are used to elevate teacher and principal quality through recruitment, hiring and retention strategies, and to increase the number of highly qualified teachers in the classroom and highly qualified principals and assistant principals in schools. The program uses scientifically based professional development interventions and holds districts and schools accountable for improvement in student academic performance.


Title III, Part A LEP –Language Instruction for Limited English Proficient and Immigrant Students

Program Coordinator – Mara Betancourt Coker, Director of Language Acquisition – ESL, Bilingual, LOTE

Title III, Part A LEP provides supplemental resources to local education agencies to help ensure that children who are limited English proficient attain English proficiency at high levels in core academic subjects to meet the same challenging state-mandated achievement performance standards as all children are expected to meet.


Title IV

Program Coordinator – Leigh Cook – Director of State and Federal Programs 

Title IV funding is supplementary to Title I funding and is used primarily to support well-rounded education and the safety and security of our students and schools.
