EducationCounsel, in partnership with Policy Studies Associates and the Wallace Foundation, co-authored this publication to support district leaders in evaluating various federal programs that could be used to support principal pipelines. This guide provides an overview of the seven domains of aligned, comprehensive principal pipelines and evaluates those activities in comparison to allowable uses of federal sources. This guide is intended to support district leaders as they reflect and evaluate how their districts have previously used federal funds, identify potential new funds, and ultimately address the unique circumstances and needs of their districts. This guide is not intended to be comprehensive, nor does it provide legal advice.
