Schoolwide

Consolidation


Consolidation Legislation and Guidance

  • Title I Schoolwide Fiscal Guidance issued February, 2008 [Section E]

  • Designing Schoolwide (SW) Programs Guidance


Consolidation

Legislation and Guidance (cont.)

  • EDGAR

  • Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular A-87

  • 69 FED. REG. 40360-64 (JULY 2, 2004)


What Does Consolidation Mean?

  • Schoolwide school treats the funds it is consolidating as a single “pool” of funds.

  • Funds from the contributing programs lose their identity.

  • The school uses funds from this consolidated schoolwide (SW) pool to support any activity of the SW Plan.

  • [Section E2]


What is the purpose of consolidation

The purpose of consolidating funds is to help a SW program school effectively design and implement a comprehensive plan to upgrade the entire educational program in the school based on the school’s needs identified through its comprehensive needs assessment [E-1].

What is the Purpose of Consolidation?


Which Funds can be Consolidated? program school effectively design and implement a comprehensive plan to upgrade the entire educational program in the school based on the school

  • State Aid and local tax revenue

  • Title VI

  • Section 31a

  • Title I, Part A

  • Title II, Part A

  • Title III


Consolidation Options program school effectively design and implement a comprehensive plan to upgrade the entire educational program in the school based on the school

  • Federal funds only

  • Federal funds + Section 31a funds

  • Federal funds + Section 31a + State/Local

  • Federal funds + State/Local


Why Consolidate? program school effectively design and implement a comprehensive plan to upgrade the entire educational program in the school based on the school


Time and effort

If State/Local funds are consolidated with Federal funds and personnel are solely funded out of the consolidated funds, then Time and Effort documentation is minimized.

Time and Effort


Due Date and personnel are solely funded out of the consolidated funds, then Time and Effort documentation is minimized.

A July 1, 2012 submission date of a quality Consolidated Application in MEGS, and a quality School Improvement Plan in the AdvancED Portal, will ensure a review (and, we hope, approval) of the Consolidated Application prior to the start of school.


Eligibility Worksheets and personnel are solely funded out of the consolidated funds, then Time and Effort documentation is minimized.

When Section 31a funds are consolidated in a SW program, the requirement for Eligibility Worksheets is optional for that school.


Schoolwide school improvement plan sip

The emphasis is on a high-quality Schoolwide SIP rather than the level of description included in the budget.
