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

2 Status of PA Funds for DFP (projected by USDE, as of 3/7/13) —includes Formula & Sequestration Percent of Reduction from Levels for Major Programs: – Title I, Grants to LEAs (-7.35%) – Title II, Improving Teacher Quality (-4.2%) – Title III, English Learner Education (-3.2%) – School Improvement Grant (-10.1%) PDE

3 Terminology The following terms are often confused but have three distinct applications: Census Poor (or Poverty Level) Percent of Free and Reduced Lunch (vs. Census Poor) Formula Percent (USDE basis for Title I eligibility and allocation of funds to SDs) 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: /datasources/ /datasources/ USDE

6 How are Census Poor and Free & Reduced Lunch applied with regard to Title I funds? Census poor is part of the formula used by USDE in the calculation of Title I allocations by school district. Free & Reduced Lunch is a local measure—used to make schools eligible for Title I within the school district. Free & Reduced Lunch is not used as a factor in USDE allocations.

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% 29.40%

9 Formula Percent Counts Used in Formula Percent Calculation (Updated Annually) Census Poor TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families) Foster Neglected Age 5-17 Population Total Count of Formula Children/Age 5-17 population = Percent of Formula Children USDE

10 Title I-A Allocations by School District from USDE Eligibility based on percent of formula children School Districts may receive funds from one, three or four funding streams within the total available Title I allocation: Basic Grant Concentration Grant Targeted Grants EFIG (Education Finance Incentive Grant) USDE

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

12 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

13 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

14 Title I Allocations from PDE USDE Calculates LEA (Prelim or Final) 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

15 Title I Allocations from PDE 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

16 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

17 Improving Teacher Quality Title II, Part A Formula Formula Factors – Hold Harmless (based on Title II-A & CSRI allocations) – Census Poor – 5-17 Population – Nonpublic Share PDE

18 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

19 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

20 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
