The McLean County Federal Programs department consists of Title I, Title II, and Title III.
Title I is a federally funded program designed to help disadvantaged children reach high academic standards. A school with at least 40% low-income is eligible to plan and implement a schoolwide program (SWP). A schoolwide program must upgrade the entire educational program in the school in order to raise academic achievement for all the students. All elementary schools in McLean County are schoolwide programs.
