15 Criteria for Food Purchases for Title I Family Involvement Trainings Trainings must be tied to curriculum such as enhancing literacy or math and teach parents ways they can assist their children at home. Trainings may not be part of the School Advisory Council, PTA, or other committee meetings. Food purchases must be reasonable in cost and type of food. 15

16 Criteria for Food Purchases for Title I Family Involvement Trainings Expenditures must be identified in the school’s Family Involvement Policy/Plan as a means of encouraging or expanding family involvement. Absolutely no food expenditures will be allowed for faculty or student events. Contact your Title I Specialist to get clarification before incurring expenses. 16

20 Field Trips All field trips must relate to the needs outlined in the SIP. All field trips must have a direct tie to the core content areas of reading, writing, mathematics, or science in efforts to improve student achievement in those areas. Title I field trips may not be used as incentives or rewards. Field trip costs should be reasonable. Resort or vacation areas (water parks, amusement parks, etc.) are not allowable as the issue of being “academic” in nature comes into play. Title I funds cannot cover expenses for parents or chaperones. 20

23 BTs Involving Salaries Every salary has benefits associated with it. Benefits sit in a different account line than the salary. Benefits are budgeted in two accounts: 521000 and 521500.

25 Requisitions Confirming POs are typically not allowed. Indicate a justification for expenditures (i.e. materials for parent workshop; Science lab materials-8th Grade). Do not split fund items on a requisition with any other fund. Check the budget before saving and submitting a requisition to your principal. After approved by your principal, all requisitions are automatically routed to your Title I budget manager. 25

26 Requisition Reminders Requisitions pre-encumber expenses. Purchase orders encumber expenses. Warehouse requisitions are not receipted. Track your requisition’s progress via eProcurement, Manage Reqs. 26

27 P Card Procedures Only Title I acceptable expenditures can be reconciled to Title I. All charges will be reviewed by Title I staff. Documentation, including SIP Final Budget, may be required for some purchases. Copies of receipts for any non-educational companies (i.e. Wal-Mart) will need to be faxed to Title I. Approved TDEs will need to be faxed to Title I for travel charges. Reconciliations will be reversed if documentation is not received by the requested deadline. 27

28 Miscellaneous Payments Miscellaneous Payment Requests are used for reimbursements to employees or internal accounts. Use OmniForm PBSD 1275. Verify that funds are available in the budget line. 28

29 Journal Entries Journal entries are required when non-allowable expenses are charged to Title I or when charged to an incorrect function or account. It is the responsibility of the school to complete the required journal entry documentation and forward it to their Title I Specialist. A Journal Request template is available on the department website. 29
