Title II Part A - Teacher and Principal Training and Recruiting Fund
Overview of Title II, Part A
The purpose of Title II, Part A is to provide subgrants to LEAs to (1) increase student achievement consistent with challenging State academic standards; (2) improve the quality and effectiveness of teachers, principals, and other school leaders; (3) increase the number of teachers, principals, and other school leaders who are effective in improving student academic achievement in schools; and (4) provide low-income and minority students greater access to effective teachers, principals, and other school leaders, in accordance with section 2001.
To achieve these goals, LEAs in the state of Florida shall focus on four broad strategies:
Prioritizing effective teachers for high-needs students, particularly in low-income schools with high percentages of ineffective teachers and high percentages of students who do not meet the challenging State academic standards [section 2103 (a)(3)(B), (F), and (J)].
The appropriateness of the strategies the LEA employs will be supported through an analysis of data on student achievement, teacher supply, and teacher, principal, and other school leader effectiveness. Strategic activities should also serve school, district, and state strategic priorities.
