Glenbard East High School receives Title I funding to ensure that all children have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach, at a minimum, proficiency on challenging State academic standards and State academic assessments.
The Title I program that Glenbard East operates is called a Schoolwide Program
Glenbard East High School is identified as a Title I school. A schoolwide program is a comprehensive reform strategy designed to upgrade the entire educational program in a Title I school; its primary goal is to ensure that all students, particularly those who are low achieving, demonstrate proficient and advanced levels of achievement on State academic standards. Therefore, as a parent or guardian, you are entitled to learn about your rights and parental involvement opportunities.
Title I, Part A, funds in a schoolwide program are used in the following ways:
-To provide services to children identified by the school as most at risk of failing to meet the state's academic content standards
- To supplement the services that would be provided by nonfederal sources, in the absence of the Title I, Part A funds
- To support methods and instructional strategies that are proven to be effective and that strengthen the core curriculum
