Title II: Part A
The purpose of Title II, Part A is to provide sub-grants to local educational agencies 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, per section 2102(b).
To achieve these goals, local educational agencies (LEA) in the state of Florida shall focus on one or more of these four broad strategies:
- Developing and implementing initiatives to assist in recruiting and hiring effective teachers;
- Increasing effectiveness of all teachers through effective evaluation and high-quality, personalized professional development;
- Increasing the retention of effective teachers, principals, and other school leaders; and
- 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.
Private school leaders and instructional personnel can access training and recruitment programs funded through Title IIA. Participation is provided on an equitable basis proportional to student enrollment and classification. Access to services is provided upon consultation.
