In general, Title II funds can be used to provide supplemental activities that strengthen the quality and effectiveness of teachers, principals and other school leaders. The purpose of Title II is to:

  • Increase student achievement consistent with state standards;
  • Improve the quality and effectiveness of teachers, principals and other school leaders;
  • Increase the number of teachers, principals and other school leaders who are effective in improving student academic achievement in schools; and
  • Provide low-income and minority students greater access to effective teachers, principals and other school leaders.

USING TITLE II FUNDS TO SUPPORT EFFECTIVE INSTRUCTION

LEAs can use Title II funds for a wide range of activities to support the quality and effectiveness of teachers, principals and other school staff. Activities supported with Title II funds must:

  • Be consistent with Title II’s purpose (see above); and
  • Address the learning needs of all students, including children with disabilities, English learners, and gifted and talented students.  

In Ohio, LEAs must prioritize the Title II funds to priority and focus schools and schools that have the highest percentage of low-income children.
