The Money You Don't Know You Have for School Turnaround: Maximizing the Title I Schoolwide Model - Title 1's schoolwide model can be a powerful tool for improving student outcomes, but schoolwide programs haven't been used to their fullest potential. The problem is, many schools eligible for the schoolwide approach limit Title 1 spending because of misunderstandings about how the federal "supplement not supplant" requirement applies to schoolwide programs.

This brief explains how schools operating a schoolwide model could use Title 1 funds for: turning around low performing schools, upgrading the curriculum, teacher support, school climate interventions, formative or interim assessments, expanded learning opportunities, and family or community engagement activities.
