What is Title 1?
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
