Targeted Assistance Schools
A targeted assistance school identifies / selects a specific population of students to serve. Unlike schoolwide programs, a targeted assistance school must focus funds on eligible children who are failing or who are most at risk of failing to meet state standards. Selection of students is based on multiple, objective criteria including: test results, classroom performance, teacher judgment, etc. Students showing the greatest educational need are selected first; other students are served if space is available. Classroom and Title I teachers work together to plan additional instruction for each student. Additional academic support is provided to identified students during the school day or through extended day / year programs. The Winston-Salem/Forsyth County School district has no targeted assistance schools for the 2012-2013 school year.
