Leveraging Title I Schoolwide Programs

This brief summarizes guidance from the U.S. Department of Education to identify opportunities to leverage Title I schoolwide programs for student-centered supports, such as ISS and wraparound services.

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) is an opportunity for state and local education agencies to provide a more well-rounded education. ESSA promotes evidence-based strategies, such as Integrated Student Supports (ISS) or wraparound services, that address the needs of students and their communities, helping students overcome barriers to success. When implemented with quality, ISS can contribute to academic progress and can improve outcomes at the school level. However, funding these programs can be a challenge for some districts.

Recent guidance from the U.S. Department of Education identifies Title I schoolwide programs as a key tool for school improvement and an important source of funding for strategies that improve the academic achievement of all students in a school.
