During the 2017-18 school year, Ionta Elementary and Delahunty Middle Schools applied to the Pennsylvania Department of Education to move from a Title 1 “Targeted Assistance” school to a “Schoolwide” Title 1 School. We are pleased to announce we just received notification that both Ionta Elementary and Delahunty Middle Schools were approved.
A Schoolwide Title 1 Program is a way of delivering Title 1 services that allows the school to address the educational needs of all students in a school community. Previously, Title 1 services were only used to target at risk students. In the Schoolwide model, Title 1 services can provide comprehensive strategies for improving the entire school such that every student can achieve at high levels of academic proficiency.
