Title I Schools 2016-2017
Focus Schools (Focus) are 10 percent of all Title I schools across the state having the largest gap between the "all students" subgroup and the lowest performing subgroup or a Title I eligible high school with graduation rates 60 percent or lower.  These schools are unique in that they do not require whole school reform measures, rather school interventions that will focus on one or two subgroups that are low achieving and contribute to an increased achievement gap between other subgroups of students in the school.   A school will remain a Focus School until it meets the exit criteria defined in Maryland's ESEA Flexibility Plan. 
 Priority schools (Priority, SIG) are five percent of all Title I schools that are the lowest achieving on state assessments. These schools have not reached adequate performance standards in reading and mathematics for the “all students” subgroup, not just for low-performing subgroup populations.  A school will remain a Priority School until it meets the exit criteria defined in Maryland's ESEA Flexibility Plan.   


 AMO Schools (AMO) are schools that need to meet the Annual Measurable Objectives for all students and the eight subgroups identified in No Child Left Behind (NCLB).  The intent, therefore, is to ensure that schools direct their instructional improvement efforts toward historically low performing subgroups and, by extension, all low performing students. The goal of 100% proficiency ensures that all students, not just low performing students, are expected to continuously progress.  

Targeted Assistance Schools (TAS), primarily addressed in section 1115 of Title I, Part A, are ones that receive Part A funds yet are ineligible or have chosen not to operate a Title I schoolwide program. The term "targeted assistance" signifies that the services are provided to a select group of children--those identified as failing, or most at risk of failing, to meet the State's challenging content and student performance standards--rather than for overall school improvement, as in schoolwide programs. Like schoolwide program schools, the goal of a targeted assistance school is to improve teaching and learning to enable Part A participants to meet the challenging State performance standards that all children are expected to master.   

School Wide (SW)  schools may use funds to upgrade the school's entire educational program.  However, care should be exercised that children in greatest need reap the benefit of the Title I funding.  A schoolwide program must be based on a comprehensive needs assessment of the entire school.  The school must develop a schoolwide reform strategy that provides opportunities for all children to meet the state's advanced and proficient performance levels. Schoolwide program evaluation is based on the achievement of all students.
