A schoolwide program is a comprehensive reform strategy funded with Federal grants designed for the entire educational program in a Title I school; its primary goal is to ensure that all students, particularly those who are low-achieving, demonstrate proficient and advanced levels of achievement on local and State academic achievement standards.
What is a Title I Schoolwide Program?
- The program is built on schoolwide reform strategies, rather than separate, add-on services.
- Serves all children in the building.
- Focuses on results.
- A federally funded program to provide additional instruction for students having difficulty with reading and/or math.
- Title I teachers have specialized training and materials for effective intervention.
- Based on a schoolwide plan that is written yearly in conjunction with teachers and parents.
Title I schools work to:
- identify students most in need of educational help (students do not have to meet income standards to qualify).
- set goals for improvement.
- measure student progress using performance goals set in the Title I plan.
- develop programs that supplement regular classroom instruction in math and reading.
- involve parents in all aspects of the program.
Participate in your child’s education by:
- attending school events.
- talking about homework with your child.
- showing your child how homework relates to daily life.
- joining the school’s Parent Teacher Organization.
- attending parent-teacher conferences.
- requesting additional meetings, if needed.
- keeping teachers informed about events and issues that may affect your child’s work or behavior.
Parent involvement is a vital component of our Title I program. Upon review of our Title I documents or the Program itself, please feel free to email Ms. Teed or your building principal with questions, concerns, and suggestions.
