2014-2015 TITLE IIA LANGUAGE IS IN THE CONSORTIUM SECTION OF THE WEBSITE
Title IIA application and final report language is posted in the "Consortium" link of our website. This language has been approved by Pat Johnson of OPI so should make the process user friendly for our clerks, superintendents and lead teachers charged to complete the 2014-2015 application as well as the 2013-2014 final report language. Please be sure to use your own district's numbers and not the example. Also, with left over money, indicate specifically what you will use it for. If you have questions or trouble accessing the document, contact our office.
As always, "Our students are worth the effort".
