18 Title I Parent Reservation Parent Involvement Reservation >$500,000 1% of the Total Allocation Of the reserved amount, 95% must be available to Title I schools; up to 5% may be used for district level activities; and private schools must receive their equitable share of the reserved amount. NEW: Describe on the Title I Parent Reservation Project Sheet how the SAU will calculate each public and private schools share of the parent reservation, how the SAU will notify the schools of their reservation amount, and who will receive the notification.
19 Title I Parent Reservation Private School Requirements Each private schools reserved amount must be based on the equitable percentage share of poverty students as noted on the Parent Reservation Project Sheet, Item 5 and also on the Private School Project Sheet, Item 4. The equitable percentage share must be applied to the total reserved amount. The amount and activities must be discussed as part of the Title I required consultation.
20 Title I Parent Reservation Public School Requirements The SAU must decide if it will use 5% to implement district-level Title I parent involvement activities; The SAU must implement procedures to determine each public schools reserved amount, and The SAU must notify each public school of their amount so that the school may develop appropriate Title I Parent Involvement activities in consultation with their Title I parents.
21 Title I Parent Reservation These requirements have implications for those SAUs that currently hire a Title I Home-School Coordinator with these funds. If the public schools and Title I parents do not want to control how these funds are spent, they can return the control of the funds to the district through written documentation. At that point, the district may hire a Home-School Coordinator or develop other appropriate parent involvement activities.
22 Title I Parent Reservation Sample Response to New Item: 1) The district will apply the equitable share percentage on the parent reservation for any private school within the district boundary and will discuss appropriate activities during the Title I Consultation. 2) The district will also keep its allowable 5% to fund a district level Title I Parent Involvement Committee and other district level Title I parent activities. 3) The remaining funds will be available to each Title I public school based on….its percentage share of Title I funds. 4) The district will notify in writing each school principal and Title I staff of its reserved amount to implement its school-level Title I Parent Involvement activities.

24 Hearing and Complaint Process Each SAU should review the States Hearing and Complaint Process located on the States NCLB homepage. Each SAU that has a private school within its boundary must provide a copy or the web location of the Hearing and Complaint Process to the private school(s) participating in NCLB programming. They would follow the Complaint Procedures if issues arise.
25 Title I Ranking & Distribution Rule Any school above 75% poverty must be served before any consideration of serving lower poverty schools through grade span grouping. As poverty levels increase this could cause issues with districts not serving their middle schools but serving lower poverty elementary schools. Solution: Use only FREE lunch numbers on the R&D page in the poverty column.
26 Changes to Title I Served Schools A Title I school that will not be served with Title I funds for the school year will lose any CIPS funding and support effective August 31, If you will be adding Title I funds to a school and its school status is CIPS1 or higher, then appropriate set-asides must be made in the FY12 application.
