Title IIA funds support three broad goals:
- Get good teachers through recruitment and hiring practices, as well as requirements for becoming
- Support and grow new teachers using effective induction strategies.
- Keep, develop, and sustain teachers through retention practices,
class-size reduction, and effective and continual professional development.
Each school district must conduct an assessment of local needs for professional development and hiring,
then develop and submit a plan to address those needs. There should be a clear connection between identified needs and Title IIA activities.
