Formula grants to school districts provide Federal assistance with the expectation of increasing student achievement from a broad school and district wide professional development plan articulated in each SAU's Professional Development Master Plan. Such Plans detail strategies that e.g., (1) improve teacher and principal quality: (2) increase the number of highly qualified teachers (HQT) and paraprofessionals teaching in the classroom, which includes "recruiting and hiring HQT to reduce class size, particularly in the early grades" (Section 2123a2B); and/or (3) improve the capacity of principals, assistant principals and superintendents in schools as outstanding managers and educational leaders.
Reminder: Districts must have a PD Needs Assessment completed in order to receive Title IIA funding
