•  Title I, Part A Schoolwide Program (K-6)

     Grand Coulee Dam School District operates a Title I, Part A Schoolwide Program in its Lake Roosevelt Elementary, which allows the school to consolidate its federal, state, and local funds to upgrade the entire educational program. Research suggests that in schools with relatively high poverty, students' needs are more widespread throughout the entire school population. Though the school is not required to identify certain children as being eligible for services or to provide certain students with any specific supplemental benefits, the focus of the program must be on addressing the needs of low-achieving children and those at risk of not meeting state student academic achievement standards. Any school with a poverty average of at least 40% (or if the building has applied for and received a waiver from OSPI) may operate a Schoolwide Program.

    Under ESSA, Title I, Part A funds may be used for activities and instruction for enrichment as part of a "well-rounded education". Therefore, funds can be used for courses, activities, and programming in subjects such as English, reading or language arts, writing, science, technology, engineering, mathematics, foreign languages, civics and government, economics, arts, history, geography, computer science, music, career and technical education, health, physical education, credit recovery, career and technical education, post-secondary instruction, and any other subject, as determined by the LEA, with the purpose of providing all students access to an enriched curriculum and educational experience.
