Title II.A: Preparing, Training and Recruiting High-Quality Teachers and Principals, and Other School Leaders
Title II.A of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act is intended to support teachers, principals, and other school leaders in their work to improve the overall quality of instruction and ensure equity of educational opportunity for all students. There are four intended goals:
- Increase student achievement consistent with state standards,
- Improve the quality and effectiveness of teachers, principals, and other school leaders,
- Increase the number of teachers, principals, and other school leaders who are effective in improving student academic achievement in schools, and
- Provide low-income and minority students greater access to effective teachers, principals, and other school leaders.
Title II.A supports a variety of professional learning, including Instructional Coaches.
In support of strengthening student academic achievement and teacher professional learning, U. City Schools receive Title II, Part A funds and will be carrying out the requirements of The Every Students Succeeds Act (ESSA).
