  FY09 level of $9.8 million. Poverty aid
  was given to Milwaukee to offset MPCP,
  while other districts are able to use it to
  offset costs due to low income children.

• The 2009 third Friday projection numbers reflect the number of students expected to be enrolled on Third
   Friday, not the number of available seats, full time equivalents (FTEs) or contracted FTEs.
• The K-8 schools’ enrollment also includes elementary schools that are in K-8 transition.
*Enrollment taken from the Sept. 19, 2008, Official School Enrollment Report.
**A memorandum of understanding (Contracting of Educational Services and Redesigning Low Performing
   Schools) between the Milwaukee Teachers' Education Association and the Milwaukee Board of School
   Directors, which limits contracting for educational services to no more than 8% of the total MPS student
   enrollment, applies to most of the partnership schools and all of the K-8 contracted programs and non-
   instrumentality charters.
         Budget Highlights
• To redirect funds to the classroom,
  purchasing division was downsized,
  saving about $400,000. This was partially
  possible by using technology to increase
          Budget Highlights
• Fringe benefit rate increased from 60.2%
  in FY09 to 62.8% in FY10.
• End the agreement with Milwaukee
  County for the district’s youth job program,
  a cut of $400,000. MPS will continue to
  contribute $400,000 the youth job program
  with the city and Milwaukee Area
  Workforce Investment Board.
          Budget Highlights
• MPS expects to receive funds in federal
  stimulus funding.
• The budget for the federal stimulus
  funding will be presented later in a federal
  stimulus budget.
• Anticipated delivering date to Board of
  School Directors is Monday, May 17,
                  School Budget Background

• School budgets begin with the forecast of future year enrollments
  and districtwide revenue projections.

• Funds are then set aside for school nutrition, non-traditional school
  allocations, school site allocations and centralized accounts.

• Remaining funds are then reviewed to arrive at per-pupil allocations
  for schools.

• Central service allocations are determined after school allocations
  are determined.

• School leaders working with their School Governance Councils then
  develop and submit their budgets and performance measure targets.

School Allocations
                 School Allocation Methodology

The first step in allocating funds to schools is to distribute site
  allocations of $209 million in FY10.

    – Site allocations are items that are not easily distributed on a per-
      pupil basis and are specific to a school, due to staffing or
      building size.

    – Site allocations are described on p. 22 of the FY2010 Overview

    – Included are staff allocations for English as a Second Language,
      High Scope, Building Operations. allocations for transportation

   Improving The Academic
   Achievement Of The Disadvantaged
Purpose of Title I

  “The purpose of Title I Part A is to ensure
   that all children have a fair, equal, and
   significant opportunity to obtain a high-
   quality education and reach, at a
   minimum, proficiency on challenging
   State academic achievement standards
   and state academic assessments.”
Title I-A Proposed Budget
  FY10 Proposed Budget = $93 million.
  Estimate based on best available information
   in January.
  Allocation
        Basic annual “entitlement” based on total children
         below poverty in Milwaukee.
        Includes an estimate of FY09 carryover.
  Could be more, could be less.
  Adjustments made in the fall when actual
   allocation and carryover are known.
Consolidated Plan
    Although Title I is an “entitlement” program – the
     district files an annual application each year called the
     “Consolidated Plan” that includes these components:

        Data-driven needs assessment.
        Measurable performance goals.
        Research based strategies.
        Evidence of community engagement.
        Evidence of non-public school participation.
        All district funding sources identified for each strategy.
School Allocations FY10
  $36 million allocated directly to eligible traditional and
   charter schools.
  $23.6 million allocated for in-school services (nurses,
   literacy coaches, etc).
  $11 million budgeted for non-public schools
   (“Equitable Participation Rule”).
  Same total school amount as FY09, even though
   enrollments expected to decline.
  Title I is poverty-based - allocated to schools based on
   the number and percentage of children eligible for
   free and reduced lunch. - Higher poverty schools
   receive more per pupil than lower poverty schools.
School Programs
  Most MPS schools have “school wide”
   programs – May use funds to improve entire
   core educational program. Focus on reading,
   math and science.
  By law, schools with less than 40% poverty
   are “targeted assistance” – services provided
   to specific academically needy children.
  Schools with less than 35% poverty cannot
   receive Title I funds.
  MPS uses Free and Reduced lunch
   applications for its poverty measure.
Restrictions on Use

    “Supplant Rule”
      Can’t use Title I for programs budgeted with
       local resources in previous years.
      Can’t use Title I for anything provided to
       non-Title I schools with local resources.
      Can only be used to benefit students,
       parents and teachers in schools identified
       as eligible and served under Title I-A.
District Title I-A Initiatives
     District Title I initiatives must meet federal guidelines
      for scientifically-based best practices. District
      initiatives include:
         Required asides for Supplemental Services and Professional
         Summer School.
         Parent Involvement.

     Funding also provided for:
         Coordination of administration and instruction.
         District Improvement support.
         Support for homeless students and families.
         Evaluation and Accountability.
District Initiatives – cont.
