Title II, Part A: The purpose is to increase student achievement consistent with the challenging State academic standards, improve the quality and effectiveness of teachers, principals, and other school leaders; increase the number of teachers, principals, and other school leaders who are effective in improving student academic achievement in schools; and provide low-income and minority students greater access to effective teachers, principals, and other school leaders. (Title II, Part A, ESSA § 2001)

Title V, Part B-REAP: The purpose of the sub part is to address the unique needs of rural school districts that frequently (1) lack the personnel and resources needed to compete effectively for Federal competitive grants; and (2) receive formula grant allocations in amounts too small to be effective in meeting their intended purposes. (Title V, Part B, ESSA § 5202)
Title IX, Part A: The purpose is to ensure that each child of a homeless individual and each homeless youth have equal access to the same free, appropriate public education, including a public preschool education, as provided to other children and youth.
