What is a Title I Schoolwide Program?

First, to be eligible as a Schoolwide program, free and reduced lunch counts must be at or above 40%. Schoolwide programs serve all children in a school. All staff, resources, and classes are part of the overall Schoolwide program.

Why is it so important to be a Schoolwide Program?

Title I Schoolwide programs have the flexibility to organize the funding sources available to them. The funding is used to improve the academic achievement of all students while addressing the needs of the lowest performing students.

What are the core parts of a Schoolwide Program?

There are three components of a Title I Schoolwide program:

  1. Thorough assessment of needs which identifies the school’s strengths and challenges in the key areas that affect student achievement
  2. Comprehensive school-wide program plan that describes how the school will achieve the goals it has identified as a result of the needs assessment
  3. Annual evaluation to determine if goals and objectives of the plan were achieved and if the plan needs revision or an update.

How do Schoolwide Programs achieve high levels of performance?
The purpose of high levels of achievement is reached through:
1. high quality instruction by highly qualified teachers;
2. reform strategies and methods based on the use of scientifically based research;
3. strategies to improve teacher quality and professional development; and,
4. consolidated and flexible use of funds.

Title I Schoolwide Programs are looking forward to partnering with parents. Please call Ms Julie DeCook, District Title I Coordinator, at 608.743.5054 or email jdecook@janesville.k12.wi.us with questions. We know your child will have a successful school year.
