Title 1 Compliance Review and Plan
EA - Title I School-wide Compliance Review and Plan
A comprehensive school improvement plan must address all of the components defined in the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (Section 1114(b) of Title I).  Each required component is described below, with an explanation of how each contributes to the creation of a successful schoolwide program. The goals and strategies you've already developed may fulfill many of these requirements.
Schoolwide reform strategies:  Instructional strategies and initiatives in the comprehensive plan must be based on scientifically based research, strengthen the core academic program, increase the quality and quantity of learning time, and address the learning needs of all students in the school.
  This school improvement plan addresses this requirement.  Please see the priority goals and strategies noted to the right:   Priority Goal 1      Reading Priority Goal 2    Science      Priority Goal 3     Math

  Our school is addressing the need for schoolwide reform in the following ways, in addition to our focus on the priority goals listed in this plan:
*Decrease the future dropout rate by increasing proficiency, promoting self-seteem, and developing an enthusiasm for learning at an early age                                                                                                                                                   *Increase physical activities and promote healthy habits across the curriculum.
 
 
Instruction by highly qualified teachers:  High poverty, low-performing schools are sometimes staffed with disproportionately high numbers of teachers who are not highly qualified.  To address this disproportionality, the ESEA requires that all teachers of core academic subjects and instructional paraprofessionals (employees of a LEA who provide instructional support) in a schoolwide program school meet the qualifications required by section 1119.  Student achievement increases in schools where teaching and learning have the highest priority, and students achieve at higher levels when taught by teachers who know their subject matter and are skilled in teaching it.

Provide staff development for our staff during the school year.
 
               
High-quality and ongoing professional development:  Teachers and other staff in schoolwide program schools must be equipped to face the challenge of helping all students meet the State’s academic achievement standards.  To do this, they must be familiar with the goals and objectives of the schoolwide plan, and receive the sustained, high-quality professional development required to implement them.  The statute requires that professional development be extended, as appropriate, to those who partner with teachers to support student achievement, such as principals, paraprofessionals, and parents.

Strategies to attract highly qualified teachers to high-need schools:  Although recruiting and retaining highly qualified teachers is an on-going challenge in high poverty schools, low-performing students in these schools have a special need for excellent teachers.  Therefore, the schoolwide plan must describe the strategies it will use to attract and retain highly qualified teachers.

Hiring is done in the Central Office of Martin County Schools.
 
 
Strategies to increase parental involvement:  Research continues to demonstrate that successful schools have significant and sustained levels of parental involvement.  Therefore, it is important that schoolwide plans contain strategies to involve parents in the school community.  Additionally, state law requires parent representation on every school's improvement team, and federal requirements specify that each school must develop: 1) an approach for communication with parents, 2) activities to involve parents, and  3) an approach for training parents to better understand how to help their children excel in school.

Parent support:  Conferences regarding ABC's Accountability and Performance Standards; Updates to the school website with current information; PTA meetings; at home use of Study Island, United Streaming, and AR.  Use of ConnectEd, EnGrade, & teacher newsletters.  Participation in DARE and GREAT.  
 
 
Plans for assisting preschool students in the successful transition from early childhood programs to local elementary schoolwide programs: This component emphasizes the value of creating a coherent and seamless educational program for at-risk students.  Early childhood programs, including Early Reading First and others, provide a foundation for later academic success, and effective schoolwide programs capitalize on this strong start.

  Our school uses the following pre-school-to-elementary transition strategies, in addition to our focus on the priority goals listed in this plan:
 * We coordinate student transitions with the local Head Start operation through having the Head Start students visit the school.  We utilize age-appropriate testing and registration practices.

 * We solicit active parent participation through academic assemblies, PTA, lunchroom visitation, advisory board, and parent night.                                                                          
 
 
Measures to include teachers in decisions regarding the use of academic assessments:  In addition to State assessment results, teachers need current and ongoing assessment data that describe student achievement.  These data often come from less formal assessments, such as observation, performance assessments, or end-of-course tests.  The schoolwide program should provide teachers with professional development that increases their understanding of the appropriate uses of multiple assessment measures and how to use assessment results to improve instruction.

* Our teachers will participate in the Core Curriculum workshops.                                                                                              
* Our teachers will use ClassScape for benchmark testing.
 
 
Activities to ensure that students who experience difficulty attaining proficiency receive effective and timely additional assistance:  The schoolwide program school must identify students who need additional learning time to meet standards and provide them with timely, additional assistance that is tailored to their needs.  This assistance must be available to all students in the school who need it.

Coordination and integration of Federal, State, and local services and programs:  Schoolwide program schools are expected to use the flexibility available to them to integrate services and programs with the aim of upgrading the entire educational program and helping all students reach proficient and advanced levels of achievement.  In addition to coordinating and integrating services, schoolwide program schools may combine most Federal, State and local funds to provide those services.  Exercising this option maximizes the impact of the resources available to carry out the schoolwide program.
