District ESEA/NCLB Title II A Application for Funds Improving Teacher Quality State Grants

How to apply for Title II A LEA funds

Districts and charter schools apply for the use of their ESEA/NCLB Title II A formula funds through the annual Consolidated Application update process. The application itself specifies what must be included; generally, in addition to cross-cutting documents such as Private School Participation external link and the use of Scientifically Based Research external link(see definition #37), the application will include narrative that outlines professional development needs and strategies and responds to federal requirements external link; an FS-10 budget; and a budget narrative that is sufficiently clear regarding proposed expenditures to allow reviewer confidence that such use is appropriate for the Title.

All applicants must respond to Question 1 in the Title II A section of the Consolidated Application; and we recommend that LEAs also provide updated needs assessment information in response to question 2. If applicants are using Title II Part A funds for Class Size Reduction, they must answer questions 2 and 8.

Notes regarding the Teacher Quality Plan

Districts no longer must complete the Teacher Quality Plan due to the approval of the ESEA waiver. However, districts are still required to support all teachers in becoming 100% highly qualified.
