In general, Title I
schools that have been identified as Priority or Focus Schools are required to
offer FLP services to eligible students enrolled in the school. The goal of the
FLP is to improve the academic achievement of the most academically at-risk
students in the school. For Title I,
Part A, the academic areas served by the FLP are reading, English/language
arts, mathematics, science, and social studies.
All students enrolled in
a school offering the FLP are eligible for FLP services. However, students are selected for the FLP through
the ranking of each student using multiple, educationally related, objective
selection criteria by core content area (the area served by the FLP) that will
be applied to determine the rank order list of eligible students by greatest
academic need. Once all students
enrolled in the school have been ranked based on greatest academic need, the federal
FLP rank order is applied to determine which students will be served
first. The federal FLP rank order follows:
FLP Rank Order I: Students in the following subgroups that are
not meeting standards as identified by state assessment results: students with disabilities, English Learners,
or free and reduced price lunch subgroups; and, if funding levels allow.
FLP Rank Order II: All other students that are not meeting
standards, as identified by state assessment results; and, if funding levels
Rank Order III: Students who are meeting
standards, as identified by state assessment results.
