​TITLE II, PART A – Teacher and Principal Training and Recruiting Fund

Funding purpose/priorities

The Title II, Part A – Teacher and Principal Training and Recruiting Fund assists with the implementation of Florida’s Common Core State Standards and the Next Generation Sunshine State Standards.  Activities shall be aligned with the Next Generation PreK-20 Benchmark:  Improve Quality of Teaching in the Education System.  Local Education Agencies (LEAs) and schools are held accountable for improvements in student academic achievement.  Projects are intended to increase student academic achievement through strategies such as improving teacher and principal quality and increasing the number of highly qualified and/or infield and effective teachers in the classroom and highly effective principals and assistant principals in schools.  Projects are expected to address and take action on the differences in teacher effectiveness between particular types of schools giving priority to teachers not meeting highly qualified requirements.
