In determining each LEA’s Title II, Part A allocation, the first criterion is to maintain the LEA’s FY 2001–02 entitlements for the Title II Eisenhower Professional Development and Title VI Federal Class-Size Reduction (CSR) Programs. The remaining funds are distributed using the following criteria:
- 80 percent based on families with incomes below the poverty line; and
- 20 percent based on census population
ESEA Section 2141 Reservations
LEAs with less than 100 percent highly qualified teachers in No Child Left Behind (NCLB) core academic subjects and that fail to make Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP), for three consecutive years, shall enter into an agreement with the CDE per the provisions of Section 2141(c) of the NCLB. The agreement shall consist of a Memorandum of Understand, Budget Agreement and the Non-Compliant Teacher Action Plan.
Title II, Part A funds may be used for CSR; however, districts placed in the Compliance Monitoring, Interventions, and Sanctions Program, Level C have failed to meet AYP and the Highly Qualified Teachers requirement, therefore will need to provide evidence that CSR will positively impact student achievement and improve retention of highly qualified teachers.
