1 ALLOCATION OF FUNDS Presented By: Kelly Gallatin Federal Funds Manager

2 Status of DFP Funds Funding Increases: –Title III, Language Acquisition (no change) –Rural & Low Income (no change) Funding Decreases: –Title I, Improving Basic Programs (-5.2%) –Title II, Improving Teacher Quality (-1.1%) –School Improvement Grant (-6.8%) –Title II, Math & Science Partnerships (-7.7%) –Title II, Educational Technology (-6.7%) PDE

3 Terminology The following terms are often confused but have three distinct applications: Census Poor (or Poverty Level) Formula Percent (or Percent of Formula Children) Percent of Free and Reduced Lunch PDE

4 Title I-A, Census Poor Census Poor –The number of children age 5-17 from families below the poverty level on the basis of the most recent satisfactory data (each person or family is assigned one out of 48 possible poverty thresholds). USDE

5 Census Info About census poverty: About school district info: About poverty data sources: about/datasources/ USDE

6 Title I-A, Formula Percent Formula Factors –Children to be Counted Census Poor TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families) Foster Neglected All Updated Annually USDE

7 How Different is Census Poor from Free & Reduced Lunch? Students whose family income is up to 135% of the poverty level are eligible for Free lunch Students whose family income is up to 185% of the poverty level are eligible for Reduced lunch

8 How Different is Census Poor from Free & Reduced Lunch? Census Poor % is generally MUCH Lower School District NameCensus FRL Big Pine SD 25.74% 60.74% Smallville Area SD 23.84% 71.68% Valley Junction SD 11.07% 27.40%

9 Title I-A Allocations Eligibility – ( Formula vs population ) –Basic Grants 10 Formula Children; AND 2% Formula Children (Census, TANF, Foster & Neglected) –Concentration Grants 15% Formula Children OR 6500 Formula Children USDE

10 Title I-A Allocations Eligibility (Cont’d) –Targeted Grants 10 Formula Children; AND 5% Formula Children –Education Finance Incentive Grant (EFIG) 10 Formula Children; AND 5% Formula Children USDE

11 HOLD-HARMLESS GUARANTEE (at USDE Level) All 4 formulas provide for a variable hold- harmless guarantee for each LEA of 85%, 90%, and 95% of their previous year’s allocation The hold-harmless percentage depends on the percent of formula children for each LEA For Basic, Targeted, and EFIG, an LEA must meet the eligibility criteria in order for hold- harmless protection to apply For Concentration Grants, the hold-harmless provision applies to an LEA for four years even if it no longer meets the 15% eligibility criteria USDE

12 Title I, Part A Formula USDE Calculates LEA Estimates PDE Adjusts for Charter Schools –Total Enrollment from sending LEAs –Calculate Formula Children 4% School Improvement Set Aside 1% Administration Set Aside Achievement Awards (5% of PA gain) PDE

13 Title I, Part A Formula Hold Harmless Applied at These Levels –95% for 30% or More Formula Children –90% for >=15% but <30% Formula Children –85% for less than 15% Formula Children PDE

14 HOLD-HARMLESS GUARANTEE (at PDE Level) Variable hold-harmless guarantee for each LEA of 85%, 90%, or 95% based on the Total of their previous year’s state-determined allocation The hold-harmless percentage depends on the percent of formula children for each LEA PDE method helps lessen the degree of severity of abrupt losses in Targeted and EFIG funds in a single year that are not held- harmless at the USDE level PDE

15 Improving Teacher Quality Title II, Part A Formula Formula Factors –Hold Harmless –Census Poor –5-17 Population –Nonpublic Share PDE

16 Improving Teacher Quality Title II, Part A Formula Hold Harmless – Amount (or estimate for LEAs established after ) –LEAs AND IUs –Ratable Reduction if Insufficient Funds –Remaining Funds Allocated to LEAs PDE

17 Improving Teacher Quality Title II, Part A Formula Distribution of Remaining Funds 80% of Funds –Census Poor –% of the Whole 20% of Funds –5-17 population –% of the Whole PDE

18 Title II, Part A Nonpublic Intermediate Units Receive $$$ for Nonpublic Programs HH at Amount May Be Eligible for Additional $$$ From Public School Districts –Based on $ Spent on Professional Development –E-grants Calculates Additional Funds—If Any PDE
