NCLB Consolidated Application TablesSchool Selection Page • School Selection Page, drop down menu to identify which of 3 Schoolwide categories a school utilizes for funding • Title I only • Federal funds only • Federal, state and local funds
Models of FundingCategory I Title I Funds Only A school may use only its Title I funds to fund its schoolwide plan. The school must still have a written schoolwide plan that contains all required components on how the school will address the specific educational needs identified by the needs assessment. All children in the school may participate in activities funded with Title I funds.
Models of FundingCategory I If a school only uses its Title I funds and does not consolidate with other funding sources, the school and LEA must account for and track Title I, Part A funds separately, identifying activities that the Title I funds support. This is governed by cost principles in OMB Circular A-87.
Models of FundingCategory I Note: This may not be as effective because it does not give the school the fiscal flexibility to use all of its available resources to meet identified needs of its students. However, the SW plan can help coordinate programs even if budgeted separately.
Models of FundingCategory II All Federal Funds Consolidated A school may consolidate federal funds only. This pool of funds allows for the loss of the individual identity of each funding source and does not need to meet statutory requirements but must meet intent and purposes of each source. Note: This may not be as effective because it does not give the school the flexibility to use all of its available resources to meet identified needs of its students.
Models of FundingCategory III All Funds Consolidated A school may consolidate federal, state and local funds. This pool of funds allows for the loss of their individual identity and do not need to meet statutory requirements but must meet intent and purposes of each.
