Is it idiomatic to say

The project is on par with the schedule

? Or does "or par" mean "up to the standard", so you need to say

The project is in line with the schedule

No, this isn’t correct. The problem is that “on par with” roughly means “comparable to.” You can’t say the project is comparable to a schedule, because the project itself is not a schedule, nor is it similar to a schedule.

You could say “the project is on schedule” or “roughly on schedule.” If you really wanted to use “on par with,” you would have to say something like, “Progress on the project is on par with expectations” - but this is needlessly wordy.
