Consolidated Plan Workshop History

 Part I Funding Details & Budget-
 June 9, 2009
 Part II Action Plan-June 11, 2009
    Location of the Consolidated Plan
  The Consolidated Plan is the LEA’s application for Federal
  Funds for:
      Title I-A+ARRA; Title I-C; Title II-A; Title II-D+ARRA; Title III;
      Title IV
      The Consolidated Plan is found in the CIP tool and it will remain
      in the CIP tool. This plan allows the state to monitor compliance
      with all the necessary federal regulations at the district level.

*The SDE has found a new process and a tool for District and/or
   School Improvement Plans. This is called the WISE Process &
   Tool. (WISE=Ways to Improve School Effectiveness)
   developed by one of the US Dept. of Ed’s Technical Centers.
   Some schools have volunteered to pilot this plan.
Most districts/schools still have their improvement plans in the
   CIP tool.
Districts/Schools who would like to write their improvement
   plans using the WISE Process& Tool may contact Lisa
   Kinnaman for more information.
   lisakinnaman@boisestate.edu

Consolidated Plan in the CIP Tool

 The following are the steps for

    Title I-A Funding Details
    Title I-A Budget
    ARRA Budget
  SELECTION AND FUNDING OF
  ELIGIBLE TITLE I-A SCHOOLS

Three main steps:
 Calculating the required Title I-A set-asides
 in order to determine the amount available
 for school-level programs.

 Entering data for each school in the LEA.

 Allocating school-level amounts.
SELECTION AND FUNDING OF
ELIGIBLE TITLE I-A SCHOOLS


Three main steps:
 Calculating the required Title I-A
 set-asides in order to determine the
 amount available for school-level
 programs.
Calculating Set-asides

 The current allocation amount is
 shown for you.
 The ARRA amount is also shown in
 a separate column
 Enter the estimated amount of
 carryover from the previous year.
 Set-asides are calculated from the
 current allocation only, not the
 total.
HOMELESS SET-ASIDE
 The Homeless Set-aside is ¼ of 1%
 of the Regular and ARRA allocation
 combined. Do not use the total
 amount which includes the
 carryover.


 .0025% is the minimum, you may
 set-aside more.
CALCULATING THE SET-ASIDE(S)
   Enter the Homeless set-aside(s).

   The Neglected set-asides are pre-
   populated by the SDE for districts that
   submitted a survey in December ’08 for
   neglected students.
     The Neglected Application can be found at:
      http://www.sde.idaho.gov/site/neglected/
   All set-asides must be described in the
   Budget Page descriptions.
PARENT INVOLVEMENT SET-ASIDE

  The Parent Involvement is 1% of
  the Regular and ARRA Allocation’s
  combined.
  If the Combined allocation is under
  $500,000, then a district is not
  required to set-aside funds. They
  are still responsible to conduct all
  the required activities.
PARENT INVOLVEMENT
(continued)

 The District must allocate 95% of the
 Parent Involvement Funds to Title I
 served schools.
 These funds must help support activities
 that provide opportunities for parents to
 learn how to support their children’s
 learning.
 The school must involve parents in
 decisions about how that money will be
 spent.
*Optional
TEACHER INCENTIVE SET-ASIDE

     Up to 5% to provide incentives &
     rewards to teachers to work in Title
     I schools identified for
     improvement.
     Could reserve Title II funds for this
     same purpose.
LEA IN IMPROVEMENT SET-ASIDE
   The LEA will set-aside 10% of the
   Title I allocation each year it does
   not make AYP beginning with
   School Improvement Year 1
   This set-aside can be waived in the
   ARRA portion of the funds only.
   If a district enters $0 in the ARRA
   column, SDE assumes they are
   requesting a waiver.
LEA IN IMPROVEMENT (continued)

   The LEA’s professional development
   plan can include title and non title
   schools for the purpose of
   addressing the reason that the
   district was identified for District
   Improvement.
LEA IN IMPROVEMENT (continued)

    The LEAS can reduce its set-aside
    by the amount set-aside at each
    school that is in improvement.

    Example: School in Improvement
    set-aside is $2345, so the district
    set-aside can be reduced by $2345.
LEA IN IMPROVEMENT CARRYOVER
   New line added so that districts may
   track any unused portion of the
   funds in the LEA In Improvement
   set-aside.
   Districts must set-aside the 10%
   plus any unused LEA In
   Improvement funds.
   *This line replaces the old line
     “Professional Development for HQT”
   *If you need Title I funds for HQT you
     may set-aside funds in “Other”.
SCHOOLS IN IMPROVEMENT
SET-ASIDES

   Any Title I School in Year 1
     Choice-related transportation
       5% to 20% of LEA’s Title I allocation
   Any Title I School in Year 2,Year 3,
   or Year 4
     Choice-related transportation plus
     Supplemental Educational Service
       5% choice + 5% SES + 10% either =
       20%
SCHOOLS IN IMPROVEMENT
(continued)

 To spend less than the amount needed to
 meet its 20% obligation an LEA must meet,
 at a minimum, the following criteria:

    Partner, to the extent practicable, with outside
    groups,
    Have a minimum of two enrollment periods,
    Ensure that eligible SES providers are given equal
    access to school facilities,
    Maintain records demonstrating that it has met the
    criteria and submit a request to the SDE showing
    evidence that all criteria has been met following the
    second enrollment period.
SCHOOLS IN IMPROVEMENT
(continued)

   This School in Improvement set-
   aside can be waived in the ARRA
   portion of the funds only.

   If a district enters $0 in the ARRA
   column, SDE assumes they are
   requesting a waiver.
SCHOOLS IN IMPROVEMENT
(continued)
 Districts with “no choice” must send a
 letter notifying parents of the AYP status
 and stating that there is no choice.
 If no choice is available districts must
 offer Supplemental Education Services
 (SES) in the first year.
 Neighboring districts may agree to accept
 students if transportation is practicable.
 Virtual Schools not identified in School
 Improvement are a choice.
SCHOOLS IN IMPROVEMENT
(continued)
 Districts/Schools who have not made AYP
 will be able to apply and become
 providers of Supplemental Education
 Services (SES)
 All SDE approved SES providers serving
 that district must be given the
 opportunity to offer services to eligible
 students.
