Element 1: Comprehensive Needs Assessment

The needs assessment is critical to developing a schoolwide program. The needs assessment reveals the priority areas in which the program will focus. The needs assessment guides the development of the comprehensive schoolwide plan, suggests benchmarks for its evaluation, and as such, is closely linked to all aspects of schoolwide program implementation. The comprehensive needs assessment is based on academic information about all students in the school, including at risk students; students from diverse racial and ethnic groups; students with disabilities; English Language Learners (ELs) and migrant students.

Element 2: Strategies for Improvement

Schoolwide strategies are essential to the schoolwide planning process. Using the information from the comprehensive needs assessment, the schoolwide plan must describe the strategies the school will implement to address its needs, including a description of how the strategies will:

  1. Provide opportunities for all children including each subgroup of students, to meet state standards,
  2. use effective methods and instructional strategies that strengthen the academic program,
  3. increase the amount and quality of learning time and help provide an enriched and accelerated curriculum, which may include programs, activities, and courses necessary to provide a well-rounded education, and
  4. include strategies to address the needs of all children in the school, but particularly the needs of children at risk of not meeting the state standards.

Pre-K Transition

 

  • §1114(b)(7)(iii): Schoolwide reform strategies that address the needs of all children in the school, but particularly the needs those at risk of not meeting the challenging state academic standards, through activities which may include—
    • Counseling, school-based mental health programs, specialized instructional support services, mentoring services, and other strategies to improve students’ skills outside the academic subject areas;
    • Preparation for and awareness of opportunities for postsecondary education and the workforce, which may include career and technical education programs and broadening secondary school students’ access to coursework to earn postsecondary credit while still in high school (such as Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, dual or concurrent enrollment, or early college high schools);
    • Implementation of a schoolwide tiered model to prevent and address problem behavior, and early intervening services, coordinated with similar activities and services carried out under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (20 U.S.C. 1400 et seq.);
    • Professional development and other activities for teachers, paraprofessionals, and other school personnel to improve instruction and use of data from academic assessments, and to recruit and retain effective teachers, particularly in high-need subjects; and
    • Strategies for assisting preschool children in the transition from early childhood education programs to local elementary school programs and, if programs are consolidated, the specific state educational agency and local education agency programs and other federal programs that will be consolidated in the schoolwide program.

Action Plan Goals

  1. Parent and Family Engagement
  • §1116: Each School-wide plan must:
  • Provide the coordination, technical assistance, and other support necessary to assist and build the capacity of all participating schools within the local educational agency in planning and implementing effective parent and family involvement activities to improve student academic achievement and school performance, which may include meaningful consultation with employees, business leaders, and philanthropic organizations, or individuals with expertise in effectively engaging parents and family members in education;
  • Coordinate and integrate parent and family engagement strategies under this part with parent and family engagement strategies, to the extent feasible and appropriate, with other relevant Federal, State, and local laws and programs;
  • Conduct, with the meaningful involvement of parents and family members, an annual evaluation for the content and effectiveness of the parent and family engagement policy in improving the academic quality of all schools served under this part, including identifying –
  1. Barriers to greater participation by parents in activities authorized by this section (with particular attention to parents who are economically disadvantaged, are disabled, have limited English proficiency, have limited literacy, or are of any racial or ethnic minority background);
  2. The needs of parents and family members to assist with the learning of their children, including engaging with school personnel and teachers; and
  3. Strategies to support successful school and family interactions;
  • Use the findings of such evaluation in subparagraph to design evidence-based strategies for more effective parental involvement, and to revise if necessary, the parent and family engagement policies described in this section; and
  • Involve parents in the activities of the schools served under this part, which may include establishing a parent advisory board comprised of a sufficient number and representative group of parents or family members served by the local educational agency to adequately represent the needs of the population served by such agency for the purposes of developing, revising, and reviewing the parent and family engagement policy.

Action Plan Goals

 

Element 3: Student Support Services

ESSA considers the integration of direct and support services as a means of helping at risk students meet state standards. Similarly, but more student specific in nature, services and supports are readily provided under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) as part of receiving a free appropriate public education. Under new ESSA requirements, counseling services, mental health programs, specialized instructional support services, and mentoring services should be considered and made available to students if the need is present in the comprehensive needs assessment results.

Implementing a Schoolwide Program as defined in the USDOE Non-Regulatory Guidance, SUPPORTING SCHOOL REFORM BY LEVERAGING FEDERAL FUNDS IN A SCHOOLWIDE PROGRAM  (pg. 3-4 and 7-8)

There are three required components of a schoolwide program that are essential to effective implementation:  conducting a comprehensive needs assessment, preparing a comprehensive schoolwide plan, and annually reviewing and revising, as necessary, the schoolwide plan.

  • Conducting a comprehensive needs assessment.  To ensure that a school’s comprehensive plan best serves the needs of those children who are failing, or are at-risk of failing, to meet the challenging State academic standards, the school must conduct a comprehensive needs assessment.  (ESEA section 1114(b)(6)).  Through the needs assessment, a school must consult with a broad range of stakeholders, including parents, school staff, and others in the community, and examine relevant academic achievement data to understand students’ most pressing needs and other root causes.  (ESEA section 1114(b)(2); 34 C.F.R. ß 200.26(a).  Where necessary, a school should attempt to engage in interviews, focus groups, or surveys, as well as review data on students, educators, and schools to gain a better understanding of the root causes of the identified needs.
  • Preparing a comprehensive schoolwide plan that describes how the school will improve academic achievement throughout the school, but particularly for the lowest-achieving students, by addressing the needs identified in the comprehensive needs assessment.  (ESEA section 1114(b)(7)).  The schoolwide plan must include a description of how the strategies the school will be implementing will provide opportunities and address the learning needs of all students in the school, particularly the needs of the lowest-achieving students (ESEA section 1114(b)(7)(A)(i), (iii)).  The plan must also contain descriptions of how the methods and instructional strategies that the school intends to use will strengthen the academic program in the school, increase the amount and quality of learning time, and help provide an enriched and accelerated curriculum, including programs and activities necessary to provide a well-rounded education.  (ESEA section 1114(b)(7)(A)(ii)).  To ensure that the plan results in progress toward addressing the needs of the school, the plan should include benchmarks for the evaluation of program results.  This plan may be integrated into an existing improvement plan.
  • Annually evaluating the schoolwide plan, using data from the State’s assessments, other student performance data, and perception data to determine if the schoolwide program has been effective in addressing the major problem areas and, in turn, increasing student achievement, particularly for the lowest-achieving students.  Schools must annually revise the plan, as necessary, based on student needs and the results of the evaluation to ensure continuous improvement.  (ESEA section 1114(b)(3); 34 C.F.R. ß 200.26(c)).

Safeguarding the Interests of Historically Underserved Populations

 

Although a school may use Title I funds to serve all students in a schoolwide program, there are protections to ensure that low-achieving students and historically underserved populations of students do not get ignored.

  • The very purpose of a schoolwide program is to upgrade the entire educational program of the school in order to raise the achievement of the lowest-achieving students. (ESEA section 1114).

     

  • A comprehensive schoolwide plan must include strategies for —

    meeting the educational needs of all students, including each subgroup of students defined in section 1111(c)(2) (economically disadvantaged students; students from major racial and ethnic groups; children with disabilities; and English learners). (ESEA section 1114(b)(7)(A)(i)); and

     

  • addressing the needs of all students but particularly the needs of students who are failing, or are at risk of failing, to meet the challenging State academic standards. (ESEA section 1114(b)(6), (7)(A)(iii).

     

  • An LEA operating a schoolwide program must comply with all Federal civil rights laws that prohibit discrimination based on race, color, national origin, sex, disability, and age. These laws include Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Equal Educational Opportunities Act (EEOA), Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and the Age Discrimination Act of 1975. In addition, LEAs must comply with the requirements under the IDEA with respect to children with disabilities. (ESEA sections 1114(a)(3)(B), 8306(a)(1)).3

     

  • An LEA must ensure that each schoolwide program school receives funds from non-Federal sources to provide services that are required by law for students with disabilities and English learners before using Title I funds in the school. (ESEA section 1114(a)(2)(B)).

     

  • If a schoolwide program school consolidates Federal funds, it must maintain records that demonstrate that it meets the intent and purposes of each Federal program whose funds it consolidates. (ESEA section 1114(a)(3)(C)).

     

  • Before a schoolwide program school may consolidate Title I, Part C Migrant Education Program (MEP) funds, it must, in consultation with migrant parents, an organization representing those parents, or both, first meet the unique educational needs of migrant students that result from the effects of their migratory lifestyle, and those other needs that are necessary to permit these students to participate effectively in school. The school also must document that these needs have been met. (ESEA section 1306(b)(4); 34 C.F.R. § 200.29(c)(1)).

     

  • Before a schoolwide program school may consolidate Title VI, Part A, Subpart 1 Indian education formula funds to LEAs, the LEA’s Indian committee, composed of parents and family members of Indian children, representatives of Indian tribes on Indian lands located within 50 miles of a school that has Indian students, teachers, and if appropriate, high school students, must approve the inclusion of those funds and the LEA must identify how the consolidation of those funds will produce benefits to Indian students that would not be achieved if the funds were not used in a schoolwide program. (ESEA section 6115(c)).

 

Element 5: Tiered Intervention

Implementation of a schoolwide tiered model to prevent and address behavior issues is supported in ESSA as a means of helping students achieve academic success. In addition, early intervening services, coordinated with similar activities and services under IDEA, are supported as well. Tiered behavior intervention and early intervening services are proactive ways of having procedures in place to address these topics at the school level. It may be wise to coordinate Title I behavior and early intervening services with already existing programs such as those in existence under IDEA.

Schoolwide tiered model to prevent and address behavior issues:

List process/activities: PBIS

  • Tier I Activities: Each grade level has a marking system where a student who had discipline problems moves from warning, to time out, to loss of recess or lunch detention, to punish work and parent phone call, and finally a referral. If a student maintains an A or B in conduct with no referrals on bus or at school for the month they earn the behavior reward party at the end of the month.
  • Tier II Activities: If a student has 1 out of school suspension they move into Tier II where they are referred to RTI for behavior which often results in them being placed on check in and check out with the school counselor. They have a daily behavior goal they have to meet and can earn a daily reward if they meet their goal.
  • Tier III Activities: If a student has 2 out of school suspensions they are referred to Families in Need of Services as well as we develop a behavior plan with targeted behaviors and charting a long with incentives for proper behavior. The School Psychologist is involved in setting up the plan with the counselor and doing student observations and collecting and graphing the data tracked to make further decisions if needed.

Element 6: Professional Development

Under ESSA, professional development activities must minimally be designed to improve instruction, provide opportunities for teachers to utilize assessment data to drive decision making, and focus on the retention and recruitment of effective teachers in high-need subject areas. Professional development activities should continue to be: high-quality, sustainable, replicable, and included opportunities for job-embedded replication at the school level.

Lafourche Parish School District embeds district wide Professional Development days in their school calendar. For 2021-22, those dates are August 2 -3, September 7, October 12, and January 18. All school personnel participate in meaningful opportunities based on district/school needs. Sign in sheets and agendas uploaded to Title I Crate to maintain a record of Professional Development activities and participants.

Schoolwide Professional Development:

  • Training teachers on NIET Best Practices

 

Element 7: Early Childhood Transition

Early childhood transition plans assist preschool children in the transition from early childhood programs, such as Head Start, daycare centers, or a state-run preschool program, to local elementary school programs. Plans for early childhood transition should be seamless, and without interruption. Sensitivity to cultural diversity in strategies, activities, and assessment tools should be included in the early childhood transition strategies. Also, plans for the evaluation of effective implementation should be in place.

Element 8: Supplement not Supplant

To demonstrate compliance, the LEA must demonstrate that the methodology used to allocate State and local funds to each Title I school ensures the school receives all of the State and local funding it would otherwise receive if it were not receiving the Title I funds. The new ESSA requirement went into effect December 15, 2017. No LEA shall be required to:

  • identify individual costs or services as supplemental; or provide services through a particular instructional method or setting to demonstrate compliance. The Secretary may not prescribe the specific methodology a LEA uses to allocate State and local funds to each Title I school.
