One Team, One Mission: Designing, Implementing, and Monitoring Effective Title I Programs
Designing, implementing, and monitoring Title I schoolwide programs can be a daunting task. Prince George’s County Public Schools is among the twenty-five largest school systems in the nation serving seventy-five Title I schools. Using a year-round model of technical assistance, presenters will elaborate on proven effective practices that have led the Title I Office to reduce its number of findings during internal and external audits. Applying the One Team, One Mission approach, the Title I Office currently relies on programmatic structures, leadership, and collaborative opportunities to ensure schools implement effective programs that positively impact student achievement.
