Riverside Public Schools currently has a Schoolwide Title I program at both the Cedar Rapids and Spalding K-5 sites. A district's site is eligible for a Schoolwide program when a site has a poverty level at 40% or higher as determined by Free/Reduced meal applications.
When a site qualifies for a schoolwide program, students do not have to meet specific criteria to receive Title I services. The site teams--which include the Problem Solving Team and MTSS Multi-tiered System of Supports teams along with classroom teachers review students' classroom performance, NWEA, DIBELS, and NSCAS assessments to determine appropriate interventions to ensure each student's success.
