Components of a Schoolwide Program
North Dakota schools must use AdvancED to meet schoolwide plan requirements.
- Comprehensive Needs Assessment for the entire school based on information that includes the performance of children in relation to the state academic content and achievement standards.
- Schoolwide Reform Strategies that provide opportunities for all children, including subgroups of students, to address school needs; use methods and instructional strategies that strengthen the academic program, increase amount and quality of learning time, and provide an enriched and accelerated curriculum; and address the needs of all children in the school, particularly the needs of those at risk of not meeting the challenging state academic standards.
- Coordination and Integration of federal, state, and local services and programs. Schools have a better chance of increasing academic achievement of all students by implementing improvement activities from a variety of sources for a comprehensive framework.
- Comingling of Funds is an option to consolidate funds with state, local, and other federal programs that will be consolidated in the schoolwide program.
