ACCOUNTABILITY, Ensuring Student Success
- LEA's must meet annual goals. Failure to meet goals for two consecutive years will result in the development of a comprehensive improvement plan
- SEA's are required to provide LEA's with technical assistance
- If after 3 consecutive years LEAs cannot increase the percentage of highly qualified teachers and meet AYP, the State must enter into an agreement on the use of Improving Teacher Quality State Grants.
