Title IITitle II Part A – Teacher and Principal Quality. The fundamental purpose of the Title II Section is to ensure learning experiences and support services are provided for educators that promote quality instruction for student learning. The ultimate goal is increased student academic learning and achievement. The section operates on the principles of high quality professional development through close connections and partnerships with other federal and state programs and initiatives for teachers, para-educators and administrators.
The Title II Part A program of ESEA’s No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act of 2001 is the cornerstone of the section. This federal program provides funds to school districts to promote teacher and principal quality through strategies such as high quality professional development in core subject areas and development of mechanisms and initiatives to promote the retention and hiring of highly qualified teachers and principals, including class size reduction.
The Bremerton School District involves building and district-wide instructional coaches to provide job-embedded staff development, model teaching, lesson design, help with data analysis, coach and differentiated instruction in the area of math, reading and science. Place a greater emphasis on math K-12. We now have a district-wide initiative in the area of math.
In addition, we are using the Response to Intervention (RTI) Problem Solving Approach to reach students prior to and after identification for special education and other services.
