What is a school-wide program?

Title I is designed to help students served by the program to achieve proficiency on challenging State academic achievement standards. Title I schools with percentages of low income students of at least 40 percent may use Title I funds, along with other Federal, State, and local funds, to operate a "school-wide program" to upgrade the instructional program for the whole school. Title I schools design, in consultation with parents, staff, and district staff, an instructional program to meet the needs of those students. Our Title I programs use instructional strategies based on scientifically based research and implement parental involvement activities.
