LEA Monitoring and Technical Assistance Unit
Title I, Part A is a part of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB). This act provides federal
funds through the Georgia Department of Education to local educational agencies (LEAs) and public schools with
high percentages of poor children to help ensure that all children meet challenging State academic content
and student academic achievement standards.

technical assistance, resources, and program monitoring of LEAs to ensure that all children
have an opportunity to obtain a high quality education and to achieve proficiency on high academic standards

to ensure effective program implementation. We also provide regional meetings and a statewide summer conference

with regulations as well as to assure the quality of the program and the instructional delivery being utilized
with at-risk populations.
