Abstract: The Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, as amended, provides funds to districts to improve the quality of their teaching and principal force and raise student achievement. These funds are provided to districts through Title II, Part A (Improving Teacher Quality State Grants—Subgrants to LEAs). The purpose of this survey is for the U.S. Department of Education to have a better understanding of how districts use these funds. The survey also collects information on high-quality professional development in LEAs. In addition to the LEA survey, the package also includes a short survey for State Educational Agencies (SEA) that provides information on fiscal year allocations of Title II, Part A funds made to the LEAs selected for participation in the LEA survey. This Office of Management and Budget clearance request is to continue these analyses using a similar data collection instrument and sampling plan for the 2011-2012 school year and subsequent years. Minor changes to the LEA survey are requested. No changes to the SEA survey are required.
