Title I

Title I Schools 2014-2015
A Focus School must be among the 10 percent of all Title I schools 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 an contribute to an increased achievement group between other subgroups of students in the school.  Maryland has identified 41 Focus Schools.  A school will remain a Focus School for three years, unless it meets the exit criteria defined in Maryland's ESEA Flexibility Plan. 

  A Priority school must be at least amount the lowest 5 percent of Title I schools in the State based on both achievement and lack of progress of the "all students" group; must be a Title I participating or Title I eligible high school with a graduation rate less than 60 percent over a number of years' or must be a currently served Tier I  or Tier II School Improvement Grant (SIG) School.  Maryland has identified 21 Priority schools; 16 are currently being served with funds from Title I School Improvement Grants (SIG), the additional five will be served using Title I, Part A funds reserved by the district.  A school will remain a Priority School for three years unless it meets the exit criteria defined in Maryland's ESEA Flexibility Plan.  

An AMO School is a school that needs 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. 

A Targeted Assistance School (TAS), primarily addressed in section 1115 of Title I, Part A, is one that receives Part A funds yet is ineligible or has 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.
