Title IA Reallocation Procedures to Local Educational Agencies in Maine
According to Section 1126(c) of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), as amended, the state educational agency (SEA) must develop procedures to identify local education agencies (LEAs) with excess Title IA funds and to reallocate excess funds to other eligible LEAs.
The identification of excess funds is as follows:
The SEA will reallocate excess Title IA funds to LEAs with the greatest need for such funds for the purpose of addressing inequities inherent in, or mitigating hardships caused by, the application of the allocation provisions. LEAs meeting the following criteria due to factors like population shifts and changing economic circumstances will be considered those in greatest need:
The point system is as follows:
The SEA notifies LEAs in winter of the possibility of reallocated funds. An LEA must submit an application (EFU428) including the increased number of poor children and its proposed use of funds. Allowable uses of these funds include staff development opportunities, parent involvement activities, extended school year/day programs, or other instructional services in the greatest area of need as allowed under Title IA statutes. Applications are due at the Maine Department of Education Title IA Office by Spring.
By mid-April, the SEA will determine the amount of funds available and will have established a rank ordered list of LEAs. Districts will be notified that reallocation funds are being reserved for use in their identified project in rank order. The SEA will continue to fund the eligible districts from the rank ordered list to the extent possible.
