2020/2021 Title I Allocation "Hint"
Background - Part of our allocation is based off of census poverty in our district boundaries as if the Feds did the Census this year. Since they haven't done the Census since 2010, they use an algorithm to estimate ("guess") what poverty exists in our districts each year. This changes every year and effects our allocation. The memo talks about how to challenge the data with the feds if you think it's wrong, but you can't challenge the calculation or the methodology.
Action - Have your transportation director look at your district map to ensure it is accurate. This is about the only thing that can be realistically challenged if it is incorrect.
Title II and IV Extra Allocation
Again - no need to re-do the TISS, Private School Consultations, and Consolidated App! The amount will be relatively small.
Please note that the deadline to submit amendments has been extended to January 31st, 2020.
