Agenda Item #44


Title
Title II, Part A Grant Application

Discussion

The primary goal of the Title II, Part A entitlement grant is to increase student academic achievement through strategies such as improving teacher and principal quality, increasing the number of highly qualified teachers in the classroom, as well as highly qualified principals and assistant principals in schools.  Teacher and principal training will be aligned with the state content standards, which correlate with the district strategic imperatives designed to deliver scientifically based research programs in an effort to contribute to closing the achievement gap.  The major activities include providing professional development opportunities for teachers and principals in all core academic areas and leadership to improve student achievement.

A final copy of the Title II, Part A application is available for review in the State and Federal Project Department.

Approve the submission of the 2013-14 Title II, Part A district entitlement grant application.
