Schoolwide Program

Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA)

A school with a Title I Schoolwide Program, which is primarily addressed in Section 1114 of Title I, Part A, is one that receives Part A funds “to upgrade the entire educational program of a school that serves an eligible school attendance area in which not less than 40 percent of the children are from low-income families, or not less than 40 percent of the children enrolled in the school are from such families”. The focus of a Schoolwide Program is Comprehensive Schoolwide Reform to ensure all students – especially those considered most academically at-risk – are able to attain academic proficiency based upon state academic standards.

ESEA For LEAs – Transition to Schoolwide
The transition to or amendment of a Title I Schoolwide Program is a yearlong process in which the school conducts a Comprehensive Needs Assessment of the school’s education program; identifies the school’s areas of strength, growth and improvement; and align their education program the 10 components of a Schoolwide Plan; and implement a Comprehensive Reform Model that support the target objectives of the SMART Goals set by the school.
