Needs Assessment
Federal regulations require that every district utilizing Title II, Part A funds must complete a needs assessment. The purpose of the needs assessment is to determine the needs of the districts teaching force in order to have all students meet the achievement standards. This assessment must be the basis for all Title II, Part A funding decisions.

Thus, there must be evidence provided of the links between the identified need (which was based on data) and the allocation of funds. Furthermore, federal law requires measurable goals/objectives so that progress can be objectively measured. The links between needs assessment (prioritized goal), allocation of funds, and measurable goals/objectives must be identifiable.
