Title I-A: Improving Basic Programs is a federal program that helps students who are most at risk meet state academic standards and be proficient on state assessments. This program provides funding to districts and schools that can be used for professional development, extended-time programs, and other strategies to help raise achievement levels. Title I-A laws hold states, districts, and schools accountable for improving the academic achievement of all students.

Currently, West Bonner School District offers a Title One program in all three elementary schools (Priest River, Idaho Hill, and Priest Lake). All schools operate with a school-wide model.
