Reauthorization

ESEA is up for reauthorization in 2008

  • Current thinking is that it will be ready by the end of this year.
  • President’s Plan—Building on Results: A Blueprint for Strengthening NCLB.
  • At this time, it removes support for all students in certain areas by eliminating Titles IID, IVA & V.

http://www.ed.gov/news/opeds/factsheets/index.html?src=gu

  • NASTID Legislative Recommendations

http://www.titlei.org/documents/finalnclbpaper61003.pdf

slide4

Reauthorization

  • NEA and other organizations report that NCLB was authorized with little input from educators. Many educational groups are urging you to be involved.
  • Check the Federal Register.
  • Let legislators know what is important to you and support your input with data.
nclb allocations
NCLB Allocations
  • Title IA-- decreased approximately

$2 million (variable hold harmless in effect)

  • Title IC-Migrant—no change
  • Title IIA—no changes at this time
  • Title IID Educational Technology- no change
  • Title III—slight increase
  • Title IV –no change
  • Title V—no change
  • Title VI Rural – no change
nclb monitoring visits
NCLB Monitoring Visits
  • SAUs are monitored on a 5-year cycle.
  • 2007-2008 reviews listed on handout in packet.
  • This begins a new monitoring cycle.
  • Letters will be sent out to the SAUs to be monitored in 2007-2008 before the end of this school year with the date of the review.
  • If changes must be made, the SAU will need to call promptly to determine a different date.
slide7

NCLB Monitoring Visits (Cont’d)

  • Want more information on preparing for an NCLB Review? Go to the afternoon roundtable or go to the following web site:

slide8

Report Cards

  • State and local school district report cards are critical tools for promoting accountability for schools, local school districts, and States by publicizing data about student performance and program effectiveness for parents, policy makers, and other stakeholders. Report cards help parents and the general public see where schools and districts are succeeding and where there is still work to do.
  • http://www.ed.gov/programs/titleiparta/reportcardsguidance.doc
slide9

Report Cards

  • Assessment Data (Assessment Report) for SAU/School
  • Accountability (AYP Report) for SAU/School
  • The professional qualifications of all public elementary and secondary school teachers in the State, as defined by the State (e.g., bachelors and advanced degrees, licensure) for SAU/School.
slide10

Report Cards

  • Assessment Data—all students
  • Accountability Data—does not include students who have not been in the district for a full academic year (FAY)
    • Data: whole group and disaggregated by subgroups
      • Major Racial & Ethnic groups
      • Students with Disabilities
      • Limited English Proficient
      • Economically Disadvantaged
      • Migrant*
      • Gender**Note that the subgroups of migrant and gender are subgroups for reporting purposes only and are not among the required subgroups for adequate yearly progress (AYP) determinations.
slide11

Report Cards

SAUs must disseminate district and school report cards to:

 (1) All schools served by the local educational agency;

 (2) All parents of students attending those schools; and

(3) The community, through public means, such as posting on the Internet, distribution to the media, and distribution through public agencies, public libraries, etc.

slide12

Contracts

http://www.maine.gov/education/edletrs/2007/adlet/07adlet006.htm

$ in NCLB Applications under contracted services requires the following:

  • A written contract signed by the SAU and the contracted entity;
  • Rationale for why the contractor was chosen;
slide20

Contracts (cont.)

  • References obtained as applicable;
  • A written code of standards of conduct for the SAU;
  • Relevant records maintained such as copies of contracts, participants attending professional development, other costs documented;
  • A process for dispute resolution.
slide21

Contracts (cont.)

The NCLB Application will have a process verifying that you are aware of these requirements and plan to comply.

  • An SAU response of “NO” on the NCLB Application will result in not being able to submit the project. You will either have to answer in the affirmative or revise your project to not include a contract.
slide22

Performance Report: Didn’t put money in contracts, but you spent some--then then the contracting box will appear and you will have to agree to comply with the contracting requirements.

  • Carryover Continuance: You can only request money in contracts if there was money in the original project.
  • Carryover New Project: The SAU will also be asked to verify that you are aware of the contracting requirements and plan to comply. A response of “NO” will result in not being able to create this new project.
contracts cont d
Contracts (cont’d)
  • While the costs for attending workshops/ conferences and course registrations should be reported in the contract category, contracts are not needed; however, you do need supporting documentation on file.
  • Stipends for persons on staff providing professional development are reported under the Salary/Benefits category.
  • A contract is required for all outside vendors.
slide24

Inventory

  • Purchases with a cost of $3,000 or more must be inventoried and identified under the Title purchased.
  • This is the amount the State of Maine has identified as capital equipment.

  • If a school was eligible in the previous

year, it is grandfathered for one year.

ranking of schools
Ranking of Schools
  • Schools may be ranked by poverty % or by grade span by poverty %.
  • The electronic application forces you to choose one or the other.

distribution of funds
Distribution of Funds
  • Schools with the highest poverty % must receive equal or more funding per pupil than schools with lower %.
  • The “125% Rule” applies if serving schools over and under 35% poverty and the district has more than 1000 students, each school must receive a per pupil amount of 125% of a Title IA district per pupil expenditure.

maine migrant education program

Maine Migrant Education Program

The Maine Migrant Education Program would like to provide program awareness to ensure that all SAUs have a common understanding of who qualifies as migrant and what services are available for migrant students.

qualifying for migrant education funds
Qualifying for Migrant Education Funds
  • In order for an SAU to qualify for Migrant Education funding, the Maine Migrant Education Program will need to determine if the SAU has qualifying migrant students.
  • In order to determine an SAU’s eligibility, we require that;
    • All SAUs distribute the Parent/Student Survey on a yearly basis to all students, and complete the Migrant Education Eligibility Form for all new registering students.
    • As soon as these forms are completed and returned to our office, we will review them and contact the families who answered yes on the form to verify eligibility.
    • Once a child is determined to be eligible, the SAU will be notified of the total number of eligible students and funding amount.

Program Overview
  • Maine's Title IV-A program is jointly administered by the Maine Department of Education and the Maine Office of Substance Abuse (OSA).
  • The day to day administration of Title IV-A is handled by staff at OSA.
slide64

Title IV-AFunding for 2007-2008

  • After President Bush recommended elimination of the program in his budget proposal, Congress has acted to continue funding for the Title IV-A Program for school year 2007-08.
  • Therefore, LEAs can expect 2007-08 Title IV-A allocations to be similar to 2006-07.
slide65

When 2007-08 Title IV-A allocations have been confirmed by USED, they will be posted on the Maine Office of Substance Abuse website: www.mainesdfsca.org

  • A link to the allocations will also be posted on the Maine DOE website.
  • We will notify all school districts by e-mail when the allocations have been posted.
slide66

How Can LEAs Use Title IV-A Funds?

  • Title IV-A funds can be used only for projects that employ “Model” prevention strategies” or “Other Allowable” preventionstrategies.
  • “Model” prevention strategies are prevention programs that have undergone rigorous review,are based on scientific research, are nationally recognized, and have been proven effective.
slide67

Examples of “Model” Prevention Strategies

LifeSkills Training Project Alert

Leadership & Resiliency Reconnecting Youth

Second Step Project Northland

Project Achieve Too Good For Drugs

Class Action All Stars

And Many More…

Here is a link to the SAMHSA Model Programs Guide website where you can find detailed information about “Model” prevention programs: www.modelprograms.samhsa.gov

slide68

“Other Allowable” Prevention Strategies

  • Via a waiver process, the State can also grant permission for an applicant to use Title IV-A funds for 25 types of “Other Allowable” prevention strategies.
  • (The waiver process is built right into the online application system. There are no special waiver forms that you need to complete. When the Title IV-A project utilizing an “other allowable” prevention strategy is approved…the waiver is also considered to be approved.)
slide69

The 25 “Other Allowable” Prevention Strategies:

1. Conflict Resolution Programs

2. Student Assistance Programs

3. Prejudice / Intolerance Prevention

4. Service Learning / Community Service

5. Substance Abuse/Violence Prev. Programs

6. Alternative Education Programs

slide73

Title IV-A Application Basics

(Your packet includes a sample Title IV-A application.)

The Title IV-A application consists of two pages.

1. Title IV-A Application Development Page:

This page captures information about the SAU’s community consultation process; data-driven needs assessment and planning efforts; review of community risk and protective factors; comprehensive, K-12 prevention programming; and prevention-related priority issues for the upcoming school year.

slide74

2. Title IV-A Project Page:

This page captures information about a particular Title IV-A funded project including identification of the priority issue that the project will address; selection of the “model” or “other allowable” prevention strategy that will be employed to address the issue; justification for use of the selected strategy; implementation details; establishment of measurable attitude and/or behavior outcomes; and a project budget.

slide75

Key questions:

  • 1. Is the project allowable under Title IV-A?
  • (The project must address substance abuse and/or violence prevention and must employ a “Model” or “Other Allowable” Prevention Strategy.)
  • Will you be able to collect sufficient outcome data to measure project effectiveness including requisite attitude/behavior change?
  • If the answer to either of the above questions is "no" you cannot apply for Title IV-A funding of the project. If the project is still important to the LEA, consider using local funds or your REAP and/or TRANSFER options.
slide76

Reminders / Tips

  • Title IV-A funds are disbursed directly from the Maine Office of Substance Abuse during the months of October, January, or April.
  • The LEA can use no more than 2% of its Title IV-A allocation for administrative costs.
slide77

A Title IV-A cash management report must be submitted to the Maine Office of Substance Abuse each quarter.

  • This can be somewhat confusing because the quarterly cash management report for all of the other Titles is submitted to the Maine Department of Education. The Title IV-A form can always be downloaded at the following website: www.mainesdfsca.org/forms.html
  • The online system includes blueHELPlinks for each section of the Title IV-A Application and Performance Report.

10% Budget Issue
  • The electronic system has no compassion. Going over budget on projects will be an exact science with the electronic performance reports & applications.
  • When the computer determines that the expenditures are over the budget by more than 10% in the Performance Report, an amendment will have to take place within the original application.
  • Amending the application can be a complex process. Monitor your budget very carefully throughout the year to avoid this headache.
carryover
Carryover
  • The system will show you if you exceeded the carryover limitation (IA, IIA, IVA).
  • It will provide a mechanism to request a waiver if you are eligible.
  • If not eligible, the system will carry over only the allowable amount; and the excess will need to be returned to the SEA.
carryover continuance projects
Carryover Continuance Projects
  • Not all projects have to be continued with carryover funds even if you will be doing them next year.
  • Any project you choose to carry over must allow you to use the funds within the allowable timeframe.
  • Carryover funds must be expended by December 31 for allowable projects under each title.
  • CIPS and Parent Involvement projects must be carried forward for their original purpose if not fully expended.

TITLE IV-A

SUPPLEMENTAL REPORTING

Incidence of Prohibited Behavior (IPB) Data

By August 1 of each year, the LEA is required to submit IPB data (for the previous school year) to the online reporting system maintained by the Maine Office of Substance Abuse (OSA) at the following website: http://www.mainesdfsca.org

slide105

It is expected that the OSA IPB system will be ready for input of 2006-2007 data sometime in May. An announcement will be sent out to all SAUs when the system is ready.

slide106

Maine schools have been advised that 2006-07 incidence data should also be entered into the “new” MEDMS SDFS module that is maintained by the Maine Department of Education. (Informational Letter

  • # 71 from Commissioner Gendron on 2/13/07)
  • Once it has been determined that the MEDMS SDFS module is collecting comparable data, the plan is for the OSA IPB system to be eliminated.
