About the Program
Title II, Part A, Subpart 3 of No Child Left Behind authorized the Teacher and Leader Quality Partnership program to provide grants to partnerships comprised of (1) at least one institution of higher education, including the division that prepares teachers and principals, (2) one school of arts and sciences, and (3) one high-need school district. The partnerships use the funds to conduct professional development activities in core academic subjects to ensure that teachers, highly qualified paraprofessionals, and principals have subject-matter knowledge in the academic subjects they teach. Project proposals are competitive and awards made accordingly.
