DAY 3 ONLY: Preparing for a Title I Schoolwide Program (3-day series)
Questions? Please contact Sue @ firstname.lastname@example.org
Title I Schoolwide programs have great latitude to determine how to organize their operations and allocate the multiple funding sources available to them. They do not have to identify particular children as eligible for services or separately track federal dollars. Instead, Schoolwide programs can use all allocated funds to increase the amount and quality of learning time. In this way, they can embrace a high-quality curriculum, according to a comprehensive plan that ensures all children meet the state's challenging academic standards.
Schoolwide programs serve all children in a school. All staff, resources, and classes are part of the overall Schoolwide program. The purpose is to generate high levels of academic achievement in core subject areas for all students, especially those students most in need.
Part three of this workshop series will provide participants:
- Further discuss what it means to be a Schoolwide Title I school.
- The last few steps for preparing to apply for a Schoolwide Title I program including a discussion of using multiple funding sources.
- A process for writing a comprehensive schoolwide plan that describes how they will achieve the goals identified as a result of their needs assessment.
- The opportunity to develop an implementation plan including an annual evaluation of the plan.
- A network for feedback on their plan.
- Support during the application process.
