79 For Additional Information OSPI Bulletin (Time and Effort Reporting)ExamplesSample formsOSPI Bulletin (Combining Funds in Schoolwide Programs)OMB Circular A-87, Cost Principles for State, Local, and Tribal Governments (2 CFR Section 225)
81 District Requirement Section 1120A(a) and 9521 of NCLB 34 CFR 299.5 Maintenance of EffortDistrict Requirement Section 1120A(a) and 9521 of NCLB 34 CFR 299.5
82 Maintenance of EffortThe district has maintained fiscal effort if eitherThe combined fiscal effort per student orThe aggregate (total of included) expenditures of the district were at districts 90% of that of the preceding year.This shows the district maintained its non-federal funding within 90%.
83 Maintenance of Effort“Preceding fiscal year” = the federal fiscal year or the 12 month fiscal period used for reporting purposes prior to the beginning of the federal fiscal year in which funds become available.Example: For funds available July 1, 2009Preceding fiscal year is 2003 (SY )Second preceding fiscal year is 2002 (SY )Third preceding fiscal year is 2001 (SY )
84 Maintenance of Effort Expenditures included for MOE Administration InstructionAttendance and health service personnelPupil transportation servicesOperation and maintenance of buildingFixed chargesNet expenditures to cover deficits for food services and student body activities
85 Maintenance of Effort Expenditures excluded for MOE Community services Capital outlayDebt serviceSupplemental expenses made pursuant to a disaster declared by the President of the USAAny expenditures made for funds provided by the federal government
86 Maintenance of EffortWhen a district does not meet the maintenance of effort test its allocation is reduced in the exact proportion by which it fell below 90% (combined fiscal effort per student and aggregate expenditures)The measure most favorable to the district is used
87 Maintenance of EffortIn determining maintenance of effort for the year following a failure to maintain effort, OSPI considers the district’s expenditures in the year the failure occurred to be 90% of the expenditures for the third preceding year.OSPI does not use the expenditures for the year in which the failure occurred.
88 Maintenance of EffortDistrict may apply to the US Department of Education for a waiver forExceptional or uncontrollable circumstances, such as a natural disaster,orPrecipitous decline in the financial resources of the district.
89 Supplement Not Supplant Considers servicesSection 1120A(b) and (d) of NCLB34 CFR

92 Supplement Not Supplant Targeted Assistance BuildingsPresumptions of supplantingThe district has used the Title I funds to provide services that the district was required to make available under federal, state or local law.The district used Title I funds to provide services it provided with non-federal funds in the prior year(s).The district has used Title I funds to provide services for participating children that it provided with non-federal funds for non-participating children.Rebuttals may be possible

97 ComparabilityA district may receive Title I, Part A funds only if it uses state and local funds to provide services in Title I schools that, taken as a whole, are at district comparable to services provided in non-Title I schools.
98 ComparabilityIf all schools in the district are Title I schools, the district must use state and local funds to provide services that, taken as a whole, are substantially comparable in each school.
99 ComparabilityComparability is met if the district provides written assurance it has established and implementedA district wide salary scheduleA policy to ensure equivalence among schools in teachers, administrators, and other staffA policy to ensure equivalence among schools in the provision of curriculum materials and instructional supplies
100 Comparability Alternative criteria The district may meet the comparability requirement if it establishes and implements other measures for determining compliance such as student/teacher rations, student/instructional staff salary ratios or total expenditures per school.Staff salary differentials for years of employment may not be included in comparability determinations.The district need not include unpredictable changes in student enrollment or personnel assignments that occur after the beginning of a school year.
101 ComparabilityDocumentation Report comparability each year on iGrant 361. The district must develop procedures/policies for meeting the comparability requirement and maintain records that are updated at district biennially.

105 Targeted Assistance and Schoolwide Programs Targeted Assistance ProgramsBuilding staff must decide what content areas (Reading, Math, Language Arts, etc.) and grade levels to be served with Title I, Part A fundsDecision based on greatest need
106 Targeted Assistance and Schoolwide Programs Targeted Assistance ProgramsStudents in the identified subject areas and grade levels are selected for Title I, part A services based on “…multiple, educationally related, objective criteria established by the local educational agency and supplemented by the school”This usually means the use of results from standardized tests, parent request, grade level academic performance, teacher and other administrative recommendations, and other discretionary criteria
107 Targeted Assistance and Schoolwide Programs Targeted Assistance ProgramsA composite score can be developed using the test results, classroom performance and teacher recommendationsThe students’ names are then rank-ordered, by subject area and grade level, on a list beginning with the most at-risk studentsThe district and/or building Title I staff then determine how many students can be served based on the amount of Title I, Part A funds that have been allocated to the building
108 Targeted Assistance and Schoolwide Programs Targeted Assistance ProgramsInstructional programs are then developed to meet the academic needs of the most at-risk studentsStudents who qualify for services can be homeless, migrant, special education students, and former Head Start, Even Start and Early Reading First students who participated in those programs within the past two yearsThe Title I, Part A staff then must decide whether the services will be delivered via an in-class or pullout model, or a combination of both
109 Pullout and In-Class Instructional Delivery Models Targeted Assistance ProgramsTitle I, Part A regulations strongly encourage minimizing the removal of students from the regular classroom to provide Title I, Part A servicesExtended learning opportunities (before and after school, Saturday school, summer programs) are also encouraged
110 Targeted Assistance and Schoolwide Programs Designed for schools with 40% or higher povertyRequires a year of planningA schoolwide plan, which includes ten (10) required components, must be completedThe plan must include the names and the dollar amounts of the federal and state programs that have been combined into the schoolwide program
