All elementary schools in the Bangor Area School District participate in Title I programming and are all School-wide Title I Programs.
What is the difference between a school-wide program and a targeted assistance program?
Title I is designed to help students served by the program achieve proficiency on challenging State academic achievement standards. Title I schools with percentages of low income students of at least 40 percent may use Title I funds, along with other Federal, State, and local funds, to operate a "school-wide program" to upgrade the instructional program for the whole school.
Title I schools with less than 40 percent low income students offer a "targeted assistance program" in which the school identifies students who are most at risk of not meeting the State's academic achievement standards. Targeted assistance schools design an instructional program to meet the needs of those individual students. Both school-wide and targeted assistance programs must use instructional strategies based on scientifically based research and implement parental involvement activities.
