Also, we have set up a pick-up point at Point Marion Volunteer Fire Department starting Monday March 23rd. Meals can be picked up in the upper lot of the fire station. 

To better plan in the preparation of these meals, we will be instituting a call-in order system starting Monday. If you are picking up more than 5 meals at a site please call 724-564-7190 extension 8122. We will need your name, the number of meals you will be picking up, and the location for your pick up. 

This information is needed by 9:30 am each morning.

We certainly appreciate your patience and cooperation during these times.

School-Wide Model

All elementary schools in the Albert Gallatin Area School District (K-5) are schoolwide programs. Schools operating a schoolwide program can use their Title I funds to benefit all children in the school. Schoolwide schools do not have to document separately the use of federal funds or certain State funds as long as their activities upgrade the school's overall education program and meet the intent and purposes of each of the federal and State programs included. Under Section 1114(b) (1) of Title I and Section 200.8(d) of the final regulations, each schoolwide program must include a number of specific components.

A schoolwide program school, for example, must:

Implement schoolwide reform strategies that are based on research, have been proven effective on improving student achievement, and address the needs of all children in the school in an integrated way.

Use effective instructional strategies that - Increase the amount and quality of learning time, such as, extended school year, before and after school, and summer school programs.

Help provide an enriched and accelerated curriculum.

Meet the educational needs of historically underserved populations, including minority students, limited English proficient students, and females.

Use highly qualified professional staff and provide professional development for teachers and other staff.

Implement strategies to increase parental involvement.

Under a schoolwide program, a school is not required to identify particular children as eligible to receive Title I services, demonstrate that the services provided with Title I funds are supplemental to services that would otherwise be provided, or document that Title I funds are used to benefit only the intended beneficiaries. Each school in the Albert Gallatin Area School District has developed a schoolwide plan.
