North Dakota Schoolwide Programs provide services that enable all children in their buildings to meet high standards. Schoolwide programs are implemented after one year of planning. A schoolwide program uses its Title allocation to upgrade the entire educational program of the school in order to raise academic achievement for ALL students at the school. A schoolwide program is built upon schoolwide reform strategies rather than separate, add-on services.
An eligible Title I school with less than 40% poverty rate may operate a schoolwide program if the school receives a waiver from the NDDPI. A school receiving a waiver must take into account how a schoolwide program will best serve the needs of the students to improve academic achievement and other factors.
A local educational agency may consolidate and use funds, together with other Federal, State, and local funds, in order to upgrade the entire educational program of a school that serves an eligible school attendance area in which not less than 40 percent of the children are from low-income families, or not less than 40 percent of the children enrolled in the school are from such families.
