Westside High School has a school-wide Title I program. Title I is a federal funded program with the intent to improve the academic achievement of students who are economically disadvantaged. The purpose of Title I, Part A is to ensure that all children have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education based on the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) and reach, at a minimum, proficiency on the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS) and State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR).
Under the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, Title I funds enable Westside High School to employ and train highly qualified teachers and paraprofessionals, purchase instructional materials and classroom computers, and sponsor parental involvement activities. To increase student academic achievement, Title I funds supplement the following programs offered at Westside High School:
