2 Instructions for School Year 1

3  Please listen and follow directions closely. Errors in reporting could result in a school not receiving any SAGE aid for  OUT-OF-COMPLIANCE SCHOOLS MAY HAVE THEIR CONTRACTS TERMINATED.  PI-SAGE-ENT Forms are due on or before October 4,

4  Report the following by each classroom/section: ◦ Number of Full-Time Equivalent (FTE) regular, licensed, elementary teachers (only whole numbers 1, 2, or 3); ◦ Total enrollment student count; ◦ Number of low-income students (free and reduced) for each class/section for each grade level; and ◦ Each grade level can have up to 15 class/section entries. Start with “Section 01” and continue in numerical sequence until all of your classroom(s)/section(s) have been entered.  Example: For three first grade classrooms, use sections one through three to report each classroom/section individually. Save after each classroom/section entry. 3

5  Reporting Total Enrollment Count ◦ Report all pupils being served under the SAGE contract for this school. ◦ Include classroom(s)/section(s) for grades physically located in a different school or building. ◦ Do NOT include in the count any 4-year-old Kindergarten pupils or pupils enrolled in this school that are not covered by the SAGE contract. Multi-age classrooms that include 4 th grade students should include 4 th graders in total student counts, but do not include them in low-income counts. 4

6  Reporting low-income students ◦ Use the measure used when determining poverty rates by school for the purposes of distributing Title I funds among the various schools in your district (form PI-9575). ◦ Many schools use eligibility for free and reduced lunch as their primary means of determining poverty. 5

7  Allows flexibility for districts and schools with current SAGE contracts  MUST maintain 18:1 or 30:2 in K and 1  Choose to maintain 18:1 or 30:2 in grades 2, 3, both, or neither in one or more years of the contract  No SAGE aid for grade levels not implementing 18:1 or 30:2 class size ratios  NOTE: Class size ratios are based on classroom configurations on third Friday in September. 6

8 Compliance in K-1  Kindergarten and 1 st Grade MUST adhere to 18:1 or 30:2  No waivers allowed  Failure to maintain SAGE class size requirements in K-1 could result in loss of contract 7

9 Grades 2-3 Flexibility  Schools can choose to participate in either grade 2, 3, both, or neither on an annual basis  To receive aid for a grade level, all classrooms or sections at that grade level must adhere to the 18:1 or 30:2 class size ratios  Example: In second grade, class sizes are 18:1, 18:1, and 19:1; school does NOT receive aid for any students in second grade. 8

10  If your school chooses to utilize flexibility in grades 2 and/or 3, please send an to Sharon Suchla and Michael Dennison when you submit your ENT. This will streamline our process to ensure aid is allocated properly. 9
