Additional Educationally-Related Services

Additional educationally-related services to homeless students not typically offered to
ALL Title I students (as defined by Title I and Homeless Q&A 4, Section 2) may be
considered per Title I legislation. However, Title I funds are not the primary funding
source for additional educationally related services. The homeless liaison is responsible
for obtaining resources for the homeless students and communicating their availability
to the Title I contact. Title I funds may be considered only after it has been
determined that available resources from the following options are exhausted:

 (A) District policies that address the availability of funding miscellaneous expenses
     for ALL students with extenuating financial circumstances (Title I and non-Title I
     students);
 (B) Availability of funds/services through a regional McKinney-Vento grant, and
 (C) Availability of community and private resources.

If all options for funding are exhausted, then the district makes a determination of
what additional educationally-related services for homeless students not typically
offered to ALL Title I students could be funded from Title I, based on the size of the
Title I allocation and the Federal requirement of “reasonable and necessary.”
Documentation must be on file to verify that all means are documented for obtaining
non-Title I resources before Title I funds can be expended.

Select and Complete Number 1 OR Number 2 below:

   1. Resources other than Title I
(District, McKinney-Vento, and/or Community Resources)

      community resources)

Method for Determining Homeless Reservation - SELECT ONE METHOD ONLY
LEAs are required to select one of the following methods for determining the amount
of the Title I, Part A homeless reservation. The reservation must be determined in
collaboration with the district homeless liaison or additional stakeholders if the Federal
program coordinator and homeless liaison is the same person (Title I Homeless Q&A
4, Sections 1 and 2).

      Method 1: Identify count of homeless students in non-Title I buildings that
                have academic needs and/or additional educationally related
                services not typically offered to ALL Title I students in its Title I
                schools, and determine a reasonable amount.

      Method 2: Identify count of homeless students in non-Title I buildings that
                have academic needs and/or additional educationally related
                services and multiply by the district’s Title I, Part A per pupil
                allocation or by the average per pupil allocation.

      Method 3: Identify count of homeless students in non-Title I buildings that
                have academic needs and/or additional educationally related
                services and reserve an amount of funds greater than or equal to
                the amount of a district’s McKinney-Vento sub-grant total, (or dollar
                amount equivalent to fiscal agent services).

      Method 4: Identify count of homeless students in non-Title I buildings that
                have academic needs and/or additional educationally related
                services and reserve a specific percentage based on the district’s
                poverty level or total Title I, Part A allocation.
