The following message was sent, by email, to all Superintendents and NCLB Coordinators on June 13, 2013.

 

Dear Superintendents and NCLB Coordinators,

 

The US Department of Education had provided states with an opportunity to extend the availability of funds for 2009 SIG grants from September 2013 to September 2014. This extension applies only to the six districts with 2009 SIG grants. 

This communication serves as notice that the Maine Department of Education intends to submit an amendment to Maine’s Fiscal Year (FY) 2009 School Improvement Grants Application to extend the waiver previously granted under section 421(b) of the General Education Provisions Act (GEPA), 20 U.S.C. § 1225(b), to extend the period of availability of the fiscal year (FY) 2009 School Improvement Grant (SIG) funds awarded under Section 1003(g) of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA), as amended, until September 30, 2014. This request to extend the waiver, submitted pursuant to section 9401(d)(2) of the ESEA, would permit Maine DOE, in accordance with criteria Maine develops, to identify and allow local educational agencies (LEAs) with Cohort 1 SIG schools additional time to expend remaining FY 2009 SIG funds in those schools.

 

This amendment, if approved, would apply to an LEA with one or more Tier I or II SIG schools that began fully implementing a SIG intervention model at the start of the 2010-2011 school year (Cohort 1).  Such an LEA that is interested in implementing the extended waiver would need to request and receive Maine’s permission to implement it.
