What is a Title I Schoolwide Program?
- A schoolwide program is a comprehensive school reform model.
- The model is designed to generate high levels of academic achievement in core academic areas for all students, especially those who are not demonstrating proficiency in meeting the state’s academic content and achievement standards.
Benefits of Schoolwide Programs
- Flexibility – combining resources, serving all students, redesigning the school and its services.
- Coordination and Integration – reduction in curricular and instructional fragmentation.
- Accountability – clear and coordinated; all students are responsible for achieving the same high standards.
- Unified Goals – schoolwide programs bring parents, the community and the school together to redesign and improve the school.
