A targeted assistance school, is one that receives Titel I Part A funds and
has chosen not to operate a Title I Part A schoolwide program. The term
“targeted assistance” signifies that the services are provided to a select group
of children – those identified as failing, or most at risk of failing, to meet
the State’s challenging content and student performance standards – rather than
for overall school improvement, as in Schoolwide programs.
A student is eligible to receive Title I services in a targeted assistance school if the school identifies the student as "failing, or most at risk of failing, to meet the state’s challenging student academic achievement standards."
