Schoolwide programs are unique because they allow schools to blend many of their federal, state, and local funds when planning their school program and budget. Consolidated funds can be used to fund the entire school program.
All students are eligible to participate in the schoolwide program.
High quality and ongoing professional development must be provided for teachers, principals, and paraprofessionals, and if appropriate, pupil services personnel, parents, and other staff to enable all children to meet the state academic standards.
The Schoolwide plan must include teachers in decision making about assessments.
