• Heritage Primary is a Title One school that receives

    Title One Schoolwide funding.   

    What does this mean for the students at Heritage Primary?

     

    Title One Schoolwide Plan: 

    A schoolwide program is a comprehensive reform strategy designed to ensure that all students, particularly those who are low-achieving, demonstrate proficient and advanced levels of achievement on State academic achievement standards. 

    A schoolwide program uses its Title allocation to upgrade the entire educational program of the school in order to raise academic achievement for ALL students at the school. No longer are students or teachers labeled “Title I,” but instead all students and all the teachers at the school use Title I dollars to improve the school’s entire academic program. 

    A schoolwide program is built upon school wide reform strategies rather than separate, add-on services. This school wide reform strategy requires that a school – 

    ● Conducts a comprehensive needs assessment; 

    ● Identify and commit to specific goals and strategies that address those needs;

    ● Create a comprehensive plan; and 

    ● Conduct an annual review of the effectiveness of the school wide program and revise the plan as necessary.

    As determined by our needs assessment our goals for the 2023-2024 school year are:

          ● Supplemental Instruction 

    ● Provide opportunities for all children, including subgroups of students, to meet the challenging Missouri Learning Standards 

    ● Use methods and instructional strategies that strengthen the academic program in the school. 

    ● Address the needs of all children in the school, but particularly the needs of those at risk of not meeting the Missouri Learning Standards 

    ● Improving Students’ skills outside the academic subject areas 

    ● Implementing a schoolwide tiered model to prevent and address problem behavior, and early intervening services 

    ● Providing professional development and other activities for teachers, paraprofessionals, and other school personnel to improve instruction and use of data 

    ● Professional development activities that address the prioritized needs
