Title II A
High Quality Teacher and Administrator Training
The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 places a major emphasis upon teacher quality as a factor in improving student achievement. The new Title II programs focus on preparing, training, and recruiting high-quality teachers and principals. Title II funds assist Hamblen County Schools in developing and supporting a high-quality teaching force, thereby improving student academic achievement.
Title II funds in Hamblen County Schools are used in several ways including:
- Employing a teacher at Lincoln Elementary to reduce class size. Lincoln Elementary typically has the highest percentage of students qualifying for free/reduced meals.
- Providing high-quality professional development for teachers, principals, and assistants
- New teacher recruitment and mentoring
- Employing 5 Instructional Coaches funded 50% by Title IIA
