School districts may use any portion or all of these funds to support early childhood education activities and, thus, the bill does not include a separate funding stream for early childhood programs requested by the Administration.

$545 million, the same as 2009, is provided to assist approximately 13,000 schools across the country with chronically poor academic performance.

Teacher Incentive Fund (TIF) - $446 million, $41 million below the President's request and $349 million above 2009, is provided.

The High School Graduation Initiative is provided $50 million to target assistance on high school "dropout factories" - schools that disproportionately contribute to the nation's dropout crisis, as proposed by the Administration.

$11.5 billion, the same as the President's request, building on $11.3 billion in the Recovery Act is provided to support programs under the Individuals With Disabilities Act.

Adult education programs are provided $628 million, the same as the President's request and $74 million above 2009, through Adult Basic Literacy Education State Grants.

The bill maintains the discretionary portion of the maximum Pell Grant award at $4,860, which, combined with a mandatory supplement of $690, will support a $5,550 maximum Pell Grant in fiscal year 2010, an increase of $200 over the 2009 award level.
