Title IIA Forms

The purpose of Title IIA is to increase academic achievement of all students by helping schools and districts improve teacher and principal quality and effectiveness. ESU7 offers a consortium for area schools that provides professional development for educators to enhance teaching and learning through funding registrations, and stipends for core academic areas.

Core academic areas, as defined by NCLB, include: English, Reading, and Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, Foreign Languages, Civics, and Government, Economics, Art, Music, History, and Geography.

Core academic areas do not include Preschool (except for Title I preschool programs that are part of an approved schoolwide plan), Health and Physical Education, Career Education (Agriculture, Business Education, Cooperative Education, Family and Consumer Sciences, Industrial Technology, Information Technology, Marketing and Trade, and Industrial Education), Coaching, or Driver Education. Courses that are exempt from NCLB qualified teacher requirements include: Psychology, Sociology, Anthropology, Humanities, Journalism, Debate, Drama, Theater, Photography, Radio-TV Production, and Religion.
