Shiloh Hills is a schoolwide Title 1 school. Per Washington's Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction, a schoolwide program takes the form of a comprehensive reform strategy designed to improve all educational programming in a school. The primary goal — ensure that all students, particularly those who are low-achieving, meet and exceed the learning goals defined by state academic standards.
Schools that receive Title I, Part A funds and use the schoolwide model must complete these 4 reform strategies:
- Conduct a comprehensive needs assessment.
- Identify goals and strategies that address those needs.
- Commit to putting the strategies into action and meeting related goals.
- Create a comprehensive plan.
- Conduct an annual review that evaluates the effectiveness of the schoolwide program.
- Revise the plan as necessary.

Under the federal No Child Left Behind Act, parents of children in schools that receive Title 1 dollars have the right to request information regarding the professional qualifications of the student's classroom teachers. All Shiloh teachers and paraprofessionals meet the criteria of "highly qualified." This means they have completed the schooling required for the subject area in which they provide instruction. If you have any questions about this NCLB/Title 1 requirement, please contact Mead's Human Services Department.
