21  Collect the information identifying at-risk students anytime after October 1, 2014  MDE is working with CEPI to develop the process for reporting Section 31a at-risk students and will provide guidance as soon as it is available but not before the winter data collection for MSDS. 21

22  The only things not allowed are costs for administration at the district or school levels.  Anything direct instructional is allowable.  Anything non-direct instructional is allowable.  However, schools are accountable for reading proficiency by the end of 3 rd grade, and career and college readiness at the end of the 11 th grade. 22

23  Expenses for central office or school administration are not allowable. These include expenditures in the following function codes: o 226 Supervision and Direction of Instructional Programs o 230 series - General Administration, o 240 series - School Administration, o 250 series - Business Services, o 280 series - Central Services and o 510 series - Long Term Debt Services  See the Michigan Public School Accounting ManualMichigan Public School Accounting Manual 23

27 (a) continued The district, public school academy, or the education achievement system shall expend that same proportion multiplied by 1/2 of its total at-risk funds under this section on tutoring and other methods of improving grade 3 reading levels. 27

28 (a) continued As an example, if 60% of grade 3 at-risk students are not proficient in reading, and the district received $1,000,000 in Section 31a funding, they must now expend 0.60 x 0.50 of their funds, or $300,000 on improving reading levels in the 3 rd grade. 28

29 b) Beginning in a district, public school academy or the EAA must demonstrate to the satisfaction of the department, improvement over 3 consecutive years in the percentage of at-risk pupils that are career- and college-ready as measured by the pupil's score on each of the 5 individual subject areas on the college entrance examination portion of the Michigan Merit Examination. 29
