Potemski, Amy
National Comprehensive Center for Teacher Quality
According to Section 2141(c) of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), as reauthorized by the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB), local education agencies (LEAs) that fail to meet annual measurable objectives and make adequate yearly progress (AYP) for three consecutive years must enter into an agreement with the state education agency (SEA) to determine the most effective use of Title II, Part A funds. As part of this agreement, the SEA will "develop, in conjunction with the local educational agency, teachers, and principals, professional development strategies and activities, based on scientifically based research, that the local educational agency will use to meet the annual measurable objectives...and require such agency to utilize such strategies and activities" [NCLB, Section 2141(C)(1)]. This brief reviews the provisions of Section 2141 of ESEA and lays out the steps that SEAs should consider for meeting its requirements. Included are examples of steps states have taken in meeting the Section 2141 requirements. The brief also presents some points to consider when developing Section 2141(c) agreements with LEAs.
