• Title II:  Teacher and Principal Training and Recruiting Fund (Teacher Quality)

    To provide funds to increase student academic achievement by elevating teacher and principal quality through recruitment, hiring, and retention strategies and to hold local educational agencies and schools accountable for improvements in student academic achievement.

    The projected allocation includes the LEA's hold harmless (the sum of the FY02 allocation for the IASA Title II, Dwight D. Eisenhower Professional Development Program and the FY02 allocation for the IASA Class-Size Reduction Program). Funds above the hold harmless level are calculated based on the low-income census count (80%) and on public and private, nonprofit K-12 enrollment (20%) using numbers provided by the U.S. Department of Education.
