are taken to help them and their schools improve, with a particular focus on the

very lowest‐performing schools, high schools with high dropout rates, and

schools where subgroups are falling behind;

information about how students are doing, while supporting states and districts

in reducing unnecessary, onerous and redundant testing;

Title I, Part C - Career and Technical Education

The purpose of these services is to provide support, service and resources to area school districts so that they can initiate and maintain quality Career and Technical Education programs. The Carl D.
