What is Title I?

A schoolwide program is a comprehensive reform strategy designed to

upgrade 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 State academic achievement standards. This schoolwide
reform strategy requires that a school:
  • Conduct a comprehensive needs assessment
  • Identify and commit to specific goals and strategies that address those needs
  • Create a comprehensive plan
  • Conduct an annual review of the effectiveness of the schoolwide program and revise the plan as necessary.
