School Wide Title I


Creed Collins Elementary School is a Title I school wide (SW) model.  This model funds a comprehensive school plan to upgrade all instruction in the school, without distinguishing between “eligible” and “ineligible” children.  School wide programs are justified on the grounds that once poverty reaches a certain threshold in a school (at least forty percent); it makes more sense to try to improve the whole instructional program than to provide services separately to some of the students.  A school must first be selected by the LEA as a participating school.  Any eligible school that desires to operate a school wide program must first develop a comprehensive plan for reforming the total instruction program in the school.
