Schoolwide Programs:  Schoolwide Plans and Targeted Assistance Plans

There are two types of programs under which schools can operate:  Schoolwide Plan of Programming and Targeted Assistance Plan of Programming.

Schoolwide Programs

Schoolwide programs address the educational needs of children living in impoverished communities with comprehensive strategies for improving the whole school so every student achieves high levels of academic proficiency. 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.  

Schoolwide Planning

Schoolwide programs allow staff in schools with high concentrations of students from low-income families to redesign their entire educational program to serve all students.  The emphasis in schoolwide program schools is on serving all students, improving all structures that support student learning, and combining all resources, as allowed, to achieve a common goal. Schoolwide programs maximize the impact of Title I.
