Teaching American History
We propose selection criteria and other application requirements under the Teaching American History (TAH) grant program. We may use these criteria and the application requirements for competitions in fiscal year (FY) 2005 and in later years. We take this action to add selection criteria and to provide more specificity with regard to the range of awards and the number of awards a local educational agency (LEA) may receive in each competition.
Innovation for Teacher Quality
The Secretary proposes regulations prescribing criteria to be used in selecting eligible members of the Armed Forces to participate in the Troops-to-Teachers program and receive financial assistance. These proposed regulations would implement section 2303(c) of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (the Act), as amended by the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB). The proposed regulations also would define the terms ``high-need local educational agency'' and ``public charter school'' in which a participant must agree to be employed under section 2304(a)(1)(B) of the Act, as amended by the NCLB.
