 All BIE funded schools receive funds to implement a Title I School-wide Program. The statute requires schools receiving the funds to annually assess their current Section 1114 plan and revise as needed and submit an annual budget to carry out a Title I Schoolwide Program. The purpose of a Title I School-wide Program is to “upgrade the entire education program” based upon the needs of the students served in order to increase the academic achievement. A Title I School-wide Program allows the school to integrate their programs, strategies and resources. A school-wide budget consolidates Federal Education funds. Federal laws permit blending of Federal resources, particularly the Title I, Part A. ESEA, reauthorized by the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB) (P. L. No. 107-110 enacted January 8, 2002). Refer to http://www2.ed.gov/nclb/landing.jhtml for details of NCLB. In addition, the United States Department of Education (USDOE) website (www.ed.gov ) provides written guidance, program ideas and audit information on schoolwide programs at http://www2.ed.gov/admins/lead/account/swp.html . Included at that site is a July 2004 document titled “Notice Authorizing Schoolwide Programs to Consolidate Federal Education Funds.”
