What is a schoolwide program?
Nicholas County has Title I Schoolwide projects. These schools must submit a written plan to the State Department of Education. Parents, teachers, and principals are surveyed and included in the planning and writing of the schoolwide plan. All students are included in the programs developed and implemented for each school. Rigorous assessment standards, differentiated instruction, process writing, reading/writing across the curriculum, early intervention strategies, extended learning time, staff development, parent training and parent involvement in the school’s programs are strong components of a Schoolwide Title I program.
