Title I, Part C-The Migrant Education Program (MEP)

Title II, Part A- Improving Teacher and Principal Quality State Grants

“The purpose of Title II,  Part A is to increase the academic achievement of all students by helping schools and LEAs improve teacher and principal quality and ensure that all teachers are highly qualified and effective.”  Agencies that receive funds are held accountable to the public for improvements in academic achievement. Title II, Part A provides agencies with the flexibility to use these funds creatively to address challenges to teacher quality, whether they concern teacher preparation and qualifications of new teachers, recruitment and hiring, induction, professional development, teacher retention, or the need for more capable principals and assistant principals to serve as effective school leaders.” (Title II, Part A, § 2101)

Title III, Part A-English Language Acquisition, Language Enhancement, and Academic Achievement

The purpose of the Rural Education Achievement Program is to address the unique needs of rural school LEAs that frequently lack the personnel and resources needed to compete effectively for federal competitive grants; and receive formula grant allocations in amounts too small to be effective in meeting their intended purposes.” (Title VI, Part B, § 6202)

Title X, Part C-McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Assistance Act of 2001
