KiNVO and Kinvolved’s Professional Learning Services Qualify as Allowable Uses of Title I, II, and IV Funds.
Improving Academic Achievement for the Disadvantaged
Part A funds help ensure low-income and disadvantaged students have access to an equitable education, which includes showing up to school. Children living in poverty are most at risk for chronic absenteeism. Funds must be used for schoolwide programs to improve academic achievement. Under the 2020 CARES Act, districts can request to waive the requirement that 40 percent of students meet defined poverty criteria. Additionally, 7 percent of each state’s Title I funds are dedicated to improvement for struggling schools. Districts can also use Part A funds for professional development to support programs.
Preparing, Training, and Recruiting High-Quality Teachers and Leaders
The purpose of Part A funds is to increase academic achievement by improving teacher and principal quality and increasing the number of highly-qualified teachers. High-quality professional development and training falls under allowable costs, and the US Department of Education includes in-service training to address chronic absenteeism in its list of recommendations.
21st Century Schools
The purpose of Title IV, Part A is to improve academic achievement by increasing the capacity of SEAs, LEAs, and local communities. The goal is to provide all students with access to a well-rounded education, improvise school conditions for student learning, and improve the use of technology to improve academic achievement.
