Hamilton Family:

Here is our Single Plan for Student Achievement for the 2021-2022 academic year. If you have any questions regarding the Single Plan please contact the Title I Coordinator at 310-280-1414.

Title 1

ABOUT TITLE I


In 1965, President Johnson set the nation on a course to ensure equity for all by increasing access to a basic education. This had been denied to many living in poverty.  Now fifty years later, with ever increasing needs and demands for an educated citizenry, we continue to build toward that goal. Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) provides resources to schools to enable students to reach proficiency as determined by the assessment of state standards in reading and math.
