Q&R

Title I Directors Frequently Asked Questions about the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009

will the 09 arra funds be utilized only for currently participating schools
Will the 09 ARRA funds be utilized only for currently participating schools?

Local education agencies (LEAs) decide on an annual basis which schools will receive Title I school allotments. The LEA should include input from all stakeholders when deciding which schools to continue serving and/or schools to begin serving for the first time.

can a school operate as a schoolwide program the first year it is served as a title i school
Can a school operate as a schoolwide program the first year it is served as a Title I school?

“The comprehensive plan shall be —

(i) developed during a one-year period, unless — (I) the local educational agency, after considering the recommendation of the technical assistance providers under section 1117, determines that less time is needed to develop and implement the schoolwide program [Section 1114(b)(2)(B)(i)(I) of Title I of ESEA].

In NC, the School Improvement

Planning process may accomplish

this requirement.

can leas request a waiver to serve as a swp schools with less than 40 poverty
Can LEAs request a waiver to serve as a SWP, schools with less than 40% poverty?

Yes. This is an allowable

waiver request for which NC

has Ed-Flex authority.

are there guidelines regarding minimum school level per pupil allocations
Are there guidelines regarding minimum school level (per pupil) allocations?

Guidance issued in 2003 states

that for schools the, “allocation

amount must be large enough to

provide a reasonable assurance that

a school can operate a Title I

program of sufficient quality to

achieve that purpose.”

slide14

If the LEA chooses to serve additional schools, will the paraprofessionals in those schools be required to meet the definition of being highly-qualified?

Yes. Title I funds under

ARRA must follow all statutory

requirements under ESEA.

can stimulus monies be used to expand preschool programs
Can stimulus monies be used to expand preschool programs?

Yes. ARRA funds provided under Title I, Part A may be used for any activities allowable with regular Title I, Part A funds.

can instructional facilitators be a district wide initiative for title i schools
Can instructional facilitators be a district-wide initiative for Title I Schools?

Yes. ARRA funds provided under Title I, Part A may be used for any activities allowable with regular Title I, Part A funds.

slide17
With state budget cuts affecting teachers, will there be any waivers regarding supplement vs. supplant?

No waivers will be allowed for

the supplement vs. supplant

provision of Title I funds.

However, cases of extreme

budget shortfall often provide a

rebuttal for the presumption of

supplanting.

will the state be able to hold the arra funds until july 1 to avoid exceeding the 15 carryover
Will the state be able to hold the ARRA funds until July 1 to avoid exceeding the 15% carryover?

Although 50% of ARRA funds

that will be made available in April,

ARRA funds for Title I, A are

considered part of the 2009-2010

total Title I allocation. Carryover

provisions do not apply until

September 30, 2010.

slide19

Should regular Title I funds and ARRA funds be used simultaneously (at the school level), or should PRC 050 be used first to avoid carry-over issues?

The ARRA funds are considered

part of the total 2009-2010 Title

I allocation. The carryover cap

will be considered on the total of

the two fund streams.

will leas be able to request a waiver to exceed 15 carry over limit for sy 2008 09 09 10
Will LEAs be able to request a waiver to exceed 15% carry-over limit for SY 2008-09? 09-10?

NC has Ed-Flex authority and may grant carryover waivers to LEAs more than once in three years (as outlined in the regulations) if sufficient justification is provided.

slide21

Can positions supported by ARRA funds (other than LEA Improvement) serve the district at large, or would services be limited to Title I schools?

Again, ARRA funds are part of

the total Title I allocation and the

use of funds must adhere to all

applicable statutory

Requirements under Title I, A.

slide22

With the reductions in state and local funding, can all qualifying students in the district attend summer programs funded by stimulus money?

Again, ARRA funds are part of the total

Title I allocation and the use of funds

must adhere to all applicable statutory

requirements under Title I, Part A.

Qualifying students are considered

those students attending Title I schools.

will the homeless set aside increase regardless of whether the present set aside is used
Will the homeless set-aside increase regardless of whether the present set-aside is used?

Title I staff should collaborate with Homeless Education staff on an annual basis to determine the reservation amount from Title I, Part A funds.
