Using Federal Education Formula Funds for School Turnaround Initiatives: Opportunities for State Education Agencies

The Center on School Turnaround released a handbook that addresses how U.S. Department of Education (ED) formula grants, such as Title I, Title II, and Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), can be used to support school turnaround efforts. ED formula grants often are overlooked as funding sources for turnaround efforts because ED formula grant programs are subject to complex rules and regulations that are difficult to navigate. State education agencies (SEAs) play a critical role in helping districts and schools navigate federal grant rules and spend funds effectively.
