Targeted Assistance Program
Schools which meet certain requirements are eligible for Title I Part A funds. A targeted assistance program permits a school to identify the most at-risk children based on academic criteria. The Title I staff provides assistance to these children.
A schoolwide program permits a school to use Title I Part A funds to upgrade the school's entire educational program, rather than to target services only on identified children. By affecting the entire program of instruction, the overall education of children in the most impoverished Title I schools can be improved.
A school is eligible to be a Title I schoolwide school, if the school so chooses. A Title I school is eligible to become a schoolwide school by having a 40% or greater poverty rate. A Title I schoolwide program allows a school to strengthen the entire educational program of a school rather than targeting service to a specific group of children. Each year schools eligible to become schoolwide inform parents of its eligibility and its impending vote by the faculty. If you have any further questions or concerns, please contact Brenda Hammond, Federal Programs Supervisor at 388-8403 ext. 8121 for additional information.
