Title I School wide Programs

1. A Title I school wide program is a comprehensive reform model used to upgrade the entire educational program in a Title I school.

2. A school wide program has the primary goal of ensuring that all students, particularly those who are low-achieving, demonstrate at least proficient levels of achievement of the Illinois Learning Standards.

3. A school wide program permits a school to consolidate funds from Title I, Part A and other Federal education program funds and resources administered by the U.S. Department of Education to improve the entire educational program of the school with the intended purpose of raising academic achievement for all the students.

4. A school wide program uses Title I funds to meet the needs of all students in the school, as determined through a comprehensive needs assessment. Individual students are not identified as eligible to participate.

5. No distinctions are made between staff members paid with Title I funds and staffers who are not. All School wide
school staff are expected to direct their efforts toward upgrading the entire educational program and improving the achievement of all students, particularly those who are low achieving.
