- extra time for teaching students the skills they need
- a variety of teaching methods to reach academic goals
- additional teaching materials which supplement a student’s regular instruction
- instructional goals targeted to your student’s needs

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.
What is Title IV?
The purpose of Title IV funds is to improve students’ academic achievement by increasing the capacity of the states, local educational agencies, schools, and local communities to:
