These funds are provided to districts through Title II, Part A (‘‘Improving Teacher Quality State Grants—Subgrants to LEAs’’). The purpose of this survey is for the U.S. Department of Education to have a better understanding of how districts are using these funds. The survey also collects information on high-quality professional development in LEAs. This OMB clearance request is to continue these analyses using a similar data collection instrument and sampling plan for the 2007–2008 school year and subsequent years. The major change from past years is the addition of a short survey for State Educational Agencies (SEAs). The SEA survey will provide information on fiscal year allocations of Title II, Part A funds made to the LEAs selected for participation in the main survey and be preprinted with the names of the LEAs selected for participation in the LEA survey.
