The first round of data collection for this study was conducted in Spring and Summer 2014. The purpose of this follow-up data collection is to provide policy makers with detailed information on the core policies promoted by Title I and Title II–A being implemented at the state and district levels, and the resources and supports they provide to schools and teachers.
