In determining the Title II, Part A allocation for each local educational agency (LEA), the first criterion is to maintain the LEA’s fiscal year 2001–02 entitlements for the Title II Eisenhower Professional Development and Title VI Federal Class-Size Reduction 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
