Informational Letter #: 88
Policy Code: DDA
TO: Superintendents of Schools
FROM: J. Duke Albanese, Commissioner
DATE: June 14, 2002
SUBJECT: No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Application for Funds and Allocations
This year the NCLB team would like to utilize technology as much as possible in its distribution of information to LEAs. The following documents and information will be posted on the new NCLB website, www.maine.gov/education/nclb:
School administrative units are encouraged to download the application form, instructions, guidance, and performance report from this site in either Word2000 (*.doc/.dot), web format (*.htm), or universal Rich Text Formatting (*.rtf) files. Allocation amounts will be found in the “New NCLB Title Name” column. By downloading the files, you should be able to complete the forms using your word processor.
If your district has problems copying or reading the files on the site, you may request a printed version by calling the NCLB Office at 624-6705 or e-mailing Lorraine Cote at email@example.com and requesting the specific forms you need.
You must return a signed original and three copies of the application and performance report to the NCLB Clearinghouse, 23 State House Station, Augusta, ME 04333 by the indicated deadline of August 1, 2002, or e-mail a request for an extension to Lorraine Cote with an anticipated date of submission. Although applications and reports cannot be accepted via e-mail at the moment, please understand that we are anticipating the availability of electronic submission in the next 2003-2004 school year.
Some draft allocations are available and have been posted out to the web site. Title IA and Title ID amounts will not be finalized and posted until after June 17, 2002 Private school counts are in the process of being determined and, according to the U.S. Department of Education, proposed regulations should be available soon to assist in distributing Title IA Education Finance Incentive Grant (EFIG) funds.
A workshop for new NCLB Coordinators to assist them with program requirements and paperwork has been scheduled for August 19, 2002 in the Augusta area. Details will be sent via e-mail in late July 2002, to registered participants. Please complete the registration form at the end of this memo or e-mail your registration information by July 31, 2002 to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are hiring a new NCLB Coordinator, be sure to register in advance for them and submit the name at a later date.
