Title I Program Models

Title 1 Program Models There are two types of Title I program models, schoolwide and targeted assistance, allowed under the  Every Student Succeeds Act of 2015 . During school year 2016-2017, Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) operates 25 schoolwide programs. At this time, MCPS does not have any targeted assistance program.

A schoolwide program focuses on comprehensive reform strategies designed to upgrade the entire educational program in a Title I school; its primary goal is to ensure that all students, particularly those who are low-achieving, demonstrate proficient and advanced levels of achievement on state academic achievement standards.

This schoolwide reform strategy requires that a school:

  • Conduct a comprehensive needs assessment;
  • Identify and commit to specific goals and strategies that address those needs;
  • Create a comprehensive plan; and
  • Conduct an annual review of the effectiveness of the schoolwide program and revise the plan as necessary.

Schoolwide Programs

A targeted assistance program focuses services only to a specific group of identified students. A key principle of a targeted assistance school is that Title I services provided for the identified students must be supplementary to the regular educational program.

A targeted assistance program must include in eight components outlined in the Elementary and Secondary Education Act:

  • Use of effective methods and instructional strategies that are scientifically research based
  • Instruction provided by highly qualified teachers
  • Provide strategies that increase parental involvement
  • Ensure that planning for Title I students is incorporated into existing school planning
  • Use Title I resources to help identified students meet the state's challengeing academic achievement standards expected of all students
  • Work collaboratively with and support the regular education program
  • Provide professional development opportunities for all staff who work with identified Title I students
  • Coordinate and integrate federal, state, and local programs for violence prevention, nutrition, housing, Head Start, adult education, vocational and technical education, and job training
