Teaching Children to Save Lives Act - Amends the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 to authorize the Secretary of Education to make grants to State agencies to award grants to local agencies and targeted schools or school districts for cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) training in targeted localities. Requires such training to use nationally recognized training courses, and to be in public schools which include students in any of grades six through 12.

Requires such grants to be used to: (1) ensure, in conjunction with local efforts, that training sites have the ability to start up; and (2) foster community partnerships among public and private organizations to help provide such training.
