MEMORANDUM

TO:        Directors of Schools with Comprehensive School Reform Grants
FROM:      Mr. John Scott, Assistant Commissioner
           Teaching and Learning
DATE:      March 9, 2005
RE:         2005-2006 Funding for Comprehensive School Reform

The Tennessee State Department of Education (TDOE) received a 12% decrease in
funding for the Comprehensive School Reform (CSR) Program for next fiscal year.
Due to the decrease in funding, the TDOE is unable to provide an opportunity for
new schools to apply for funding.
In the past, CSR had two funding sources: a grant award from the United States
Department of Education (USDOE) through Title l Part F and a grant award from
Fund for the Improvement of Education (FIE). Funding through FIE has ended. FIE
was the funding source for non-Title l schools. Since this funding is no longer
available, the TDOE will not award grants to non-Title l schools. Schools affected by
this decision will be notified individually.
Only Title l CSR schools will be funded starting next fiscal year. Plans are underway
to determine allocations for Title CSR schools that will be in year two and year three
of their projects
For more information contact Elizabeth Roper, CSR Project Director at (615) 253-
0047 or e-mail Elizabeth.Roper@state.tn.us.
