Title IIA

Title IIA Forms

The purpose of Title II-A Federal funds is to increase the academic achievement of all students through strategies such as improving teacher and Principal quality and increasing the number of highly qualified teachers in the classroom and highly qualified Principals and leaders in schools.  Through the program, State & local educational agencies receive funds on a formula basis.  In exchange, agencies that receive funds are held accountable to the public for improvements in academic achievement. Changes in Title II-A of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA), as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), offer new opportunities for State & local education agencies to consider new and additional uses of Title II-A funds that are innovative and evidence-based.

ESU 7 offers a Title II-A Consortium for area schools to support the goal of Title II-A: Increase academic achievement of all students by helping schools and districts improve teacher and Principal quality.  Participation in the ESU 7 Title II-A Consortium is offered to all nineteen ESU 7 school districts and provides professional development for teachers, Principals and other school leaders to enhance teaching and learning.  This is achieved through planning and financing unit-wide activities, funding registrations, and paying stipends to those in the Consortium.  ESU 7 Superintendents and Principals participate in an annual needs-assessment to determine unit-wide needs; this needs-assessment guides ESU 7 planning of Professional Development topics & speakers for the following school year and summer.  Superintendents approve the Title II-A unit-wide plan in the Spring.
