Element 1: Comprehensive Needs Assessment 

The needs assessment is critical to developing a schoolwide program. The needs assessment reveals the priority areas in which the program will focus. The needs assessment guides the development of the comprehensive schoolwide plan, suggests benchmarks for its evaluation, and as such, is closely linked to all aspects of schoolwide program implementation. The comprehensive needs assessment is based on academic information about all students in the school, including at risk students; students from diverse racial and ethnic groups; students with disabilities; English Language Learners (ELs) and migrant students.
