9 “That Time of Year”: Data Team Updates Topical Call Series on Data Quality and Use Improving Data Quality and Use – Come prepared to discuss what CSPR data items you need and how you need them presented (e.g., by program type) for effective data use at the state level – 3 calls throughout the year
10 Recent TA Requests REQUEST: Can the Title I D, Subpart 1 funds that are set-aside for transition services be used to pay for students to take a vocational course that earns college credit? RESPONSE: Using your transition funds to support vocational training should not be a problem provided you are not supplanting funds in anyway.
11 Recent TA Requests H-1. What activities may Subpart 1 funds support? – …Projects may use Subpart 1 funds to pay the necessary and reasonable costs that provide a variety of services, including reading, mathematics, language arts, and vocationally oriented programs that include academic classroom instruction so long as these are supplementary services and materials. K-2. What are examples of transition services? – …An SA could also use a wide range of local resources and placements to provide transition activities. For example an SA could arrange for children and youth leaving a facility to 1) attend public or private institutions with LEA s paying assessment or application fees; or 2) participate in local vocational education programs, GED preparation programs offered by community colleges, or entrance into job training programs for older youth. K-4. Do activities undertaken with the 15–30 percent transition reservation have to be transition activities not in any way already provided by the institution's school program? K-4. Do activities undertaken with the 15–30 percent transition reservation have to be transition activities not in any way already provided by the institution's school program? – No. The list of activities suggested in section 1418 of ESEA includes many activities that institutional programs already provide. However, transition activities, like other activities funded by Subpart 1, must supplement and not supplant services that would in the absence of Subpart 1 funds be provided through State or local funds.
12 Recent TA Requests REQUEST: – Could a tribe be considered a State Agency under Subpart 1 if they are operating a tribal correctional facility? Alternatively, could an SEA grant TIPD funds to a local LEA in order to allow TIPD funds to flow to the facility? The SEA would like to engage the tribal education board to encourage more tribal facilities to participate in the October count. However, are such facilities actually eligible under Subpart 1 or 2?
13 Recent TA Requests RESPONSE: – Unfortunately, ED has not yet found a way to get more Part A or D resources to tribal youth. The bottom line is that they would not be eligible for Subpart 1 funds as they are not an SEA or recognized in the statute. There have been ESEA reauthorization proposals that try to address this (e.g., Harkin’s bill introduced in Spring 2013). A Subpart 2 count would be a stretch as there aren’t “geographical boundaries” for BIE schools that include local juvenile correctional facilities that he is aware of. If there actually are, BIE could try to submit a child count for them in which case ED could reserve funds for a Subpart 2 allocation and you would need to amend your consolidated State plan or inter-agency agreement with ED. – Some residential BIE schools actually take youth placed there by tribal or juvenile courts and wondered whether they could count as a local N or D facility. This would be the SEA’s call. – BIE schools receiving Part A funds can optionally set aside funds under Section 1113(c)(3)(C) for youth returning from juvenile corrections or community day programs. John is only aware of one LEA (in California) that has ever done this. Perhaps this could be a basis for providing “reentry” services before these youth exit the facility.
