Project Title: TITLE II, PART A

CFDA Code: 84.367A

General Information

Title II, Part A funds are awarded to districts to increase the academic achievement of all students by helping schools and districts improve teacher and principal quality and ensure that all teachers are highly qualified. Through the program, State and local educational agencies (SEAs and LEAs) receive funds on a formula basis.

Title II, Part A provides these agencies with the flexibility to use these funds creatively to address challenges to teacher quality, whether they concern teacher preparation and qualifications of new teachers, recruitment and hiring, induction, professional development, teacher retention, or the need for more capable principals and assistant principals to serve as effective school leaders.

During the 2017-2018 school year the Department will work with Iowa schools to refine the above requirements and recommendations to align with Iowas plan under the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) for implementation in 2018-2019. This is a transition year, so flexibility will be allowed when determining the use of funds under Title II A upon approval of the IDE.

Title II, Part A - Purpose:

  1. To increase student achievement consistent with the challenging State academic standards
  2. To improve the quality and effectiveness of teachers, principals, and other school leaders
  3. To increase the number of teachers, principals, and other school leaders who are effective in improving student academic achievement in schools
  4. To provide low-income and minority students greater access to effective teachers, principals, and other school leaders
