FY21 Title II Educator Quality INCREASE for the period September 1, 2020 to June 30, 2021 in the amount of $1,376.00

Description: As part of a comprehensive district initiative that focuses on the preparation, training, recruitment, and retention of highly qualified educators, Title IIA funds in FY21 will continue to support a new .5 Instructional Coach for history/social studies teachers in grades K-5; the temporary salaries line will fund teacher stipends for mentoring (to be supplemented by Title IV funds); other expenses include professional development for Math and the required allocation to participating private schools.

The increase of $1,376 on Title IIA will be used for Mentor stipends (Temporary Salaries line). The benefits for the .5 History coach were adjusted to reflect the full actual costs, and the reduction in Other Expenses is due to reduced costs of PD in math.
