(Continuous Improvement Plan and Budget Narrative Spending Workbook) Title V-A application must include the following information: 1. A description of locally identified needs relative to the purposes of Title V-A and to the programs that the LEAs may carry out under one or more of the innovative assistance program areas (see question E-1). 2. A statement that sets forth the LEA s planned allocation of funds, based on the identified needs among the innovative assistance program areas, a description of the programs that the LEA intends to support, and a description of the reasons for the selection of these programs. 3. Information setting forth the allocation of funds required to provide equitable services to students in private, nonprofit schools under section A description of how the Title V-A funds will contribute to improving student academic achievement or improving the quality of education for students. 5. An assurance that the LEA will comply with the requirements of Title V-A, including the requirements of section 5142 concerning the participation of children enrolled in private, nonprofit schools. 6. An assurance that the LEA will keep such records, and provide such information to the SEA, as may be reasonably required for fiscal audit and program evaluation (consistent with the responsibilities of the SEA under the program). 7. A provision, in the allocation of funds and in the planning, design, and implementation of innovative assistance programs, for systematic consultation with parents of children attending elementary schools and secondary schools in the area served by the LEA, with teachers and administrative personnel in such schools, and with such other groups involved in the implementation of Title V-A (such as librarians, school counselors, and other pupil services personnel) as may be considered appropriate by the LEA. 8. An assurance that the LEA will evaluate its Title V-A programs annually; that it will use the evaluation to make decisions about appropriate changes in programs 7

8 for the subsequent year; that the evaluation will describe how use of Title V-A funds affected student academic achievement and will include, at a minimum, information and data on the use of funds, the types of services furnished, and the students served under this part; and that the LEA will submit the evaluation to the SEA in the time and manner requested by the SEA. 9. A description of how the LEA will comply with the Department s guidelines regarding same-gender schools and classrooms, if the LEA plans to carry out a program that involves providing same-gender schools and classrooms. 10. LEAs must identify and describe local needs relative to the purposes of authorized programs of Title V-A, must base their allocation of funds among the different innovative assistance program areas on those identified needs, and must provide an assurance that they will conduct an annual local evaluation of the programs that they implement using Title V-A funds. LEAs have the flexibility to determine which innovative program areas will best assist them in meeting those needs and to design good programs that are targeted toward those needs, and that will help increase student academic achievement or the quality of education. 18. NCLB Title VA application Requirements USDE Guidance section H. FISCAL REQUIREMENTS Section 5144 provides that Title V-A funds shall be used to supplement, and not supplant, any other Federal, State, or local education funds. The ability of an SEA or LEA to use Title V-A funds to carry out activities required by a State-mandated program depends upon whether non-federal funds are already available to carry out activities under the State-mandated plan. Presumably, in the absence of Title V-A funds, the SEA or LEA would use State or local funds to carry out a State-mandated plan. To use Title V-A funds in connection with that plan would therefore violate the supplement, not supplant requirement. However, in certain instances, an SEA or LEA may overcome the presumption that supplanting will result if Title V-A funds are used in connection with a State-mandated program or activity. In those instances, the SEA or LEA should be able to demonstrate through written documentation (e.g., State or local legislative action, budget information, or other materials) that it does not have the funds necessary to implement the program or activity and that the program or activity would not be carried out in the absence of the Title V-A funds. In general, an SEA or LEA should determine what educational activities it would support if no Title V-A funds were available. If the result of this determination is that no State or local funds remain available to fund certain activities that are supplemental in nature, then the SEA or LEA may be able to use Title V-A funds for those activities. In no event, however, may an SEA or LEA decrease State or local funds for particular activities because Title V-A funds are available. 19. Supplement not Supplant USDE Guidance section H. FISCAL REQUIREMENTS In general, an SEA or LEA should determine what educational activities it would support if no Title V-A funds were available. If the result of this determination is that no State or 8

9 local funds remain available to fund certain activities that are supplemental in nature, then the SEA or LEA may be able to use Title V-A funds for those activities. In no event, however, may an SEA or LEA decrease State or local funds for particular activities because Title V-A funds are available. 20. Title VA and the CIP CIP Guidance: Writing the Continuous Improvement Plan What Sections Must the CIP Contain? D. Self-Evaluation Summary Answers the question: Where are we now? What are our needs? Tools needed: Oregon Education Performance Standards and related data Results of data analysis and needs assessments Standards for District Success 21. Title VA and the CIP CIP Guidance: Writing the Continuous Improvement Plan E. Action Plan Answers the questions: How are we going to get there? How will we know when we get there? Action plans show in detail with concise statements under each improvement goal, what measurable steps will be taken to accomplish the individual improvement goal. An action plan is developed for each goal stating: The stated goal Evidence of Implementation (Monitoring Outcomes) Evidence of Impact (the evaluation of effectiveness of the strategy in producing the desired change Strategy, program, practice to be implemented The person(s) responsible for implementation A timeline for implementation The cost of the implementation The resource(s) to be used to implement the action The planning team needs to have a clear idea of all available resources for implementation of the plan. State, local, federal and community resources should all be considered and coordinated in supporting the strategies. The planning team must also understand the purposes for which each funding source can be used. 22. Title VA and the CIP Meeting Title VA requirements See LEA Uses of Funds above 9

Participation of Children Attending Private non profit schools USDE Guidance F. PARTICIPATION OF CHILDREN ENROLLED IN PRIVATE, NONPROFIT SCHOOLS An LEA must provide Title V-A services to children enrolled in a private, nonprofit school within the LEA if, after consultation with private school officials, the officials of the private school indicate that they wish the children in that school to participate. The LEA must contact the private schools within the LEA annually to determine which schools wish their children to participate. The LEA must consult with the officials of interested private schools in a timely and meaningful manner to determine the needs of the children, the types of Title V-A services that will be provided, and how those services will be provided. The LEA provides those services on an equitable basis to those children whether or not the services are the same Title V-A services the LEA provides to the public school children. The expenditures for such services, however, shall be equal (consistent with the number of children served) to Title V-A services provided to public school children. 25. Participation of Children Attending Private non profit schools An LEA must provide Title V-A services to children enrolled in a private, nonprofit school within the LEA if, after consultation with private school officials, the officials of the private school indicate that they wish the children in that school to participate. 26.

The LEA provides those services on an equitable basis to those children whether or not the services are the same Title V-A services the LEA provides to the public school children. The expenditures for such services, however, shall be equal (consistent with the number of children served) to Title V-A services provided to public school children. Title VA 5142 (a) PARTICIPATION ON EQUITABLE BASIS- (1) IN GENERAL To the extent consistent with the number of children in the school district of a local educational agency that is eligible to receive funds under this part, or that serves the area in which a program assisted under this part is located, who are enrolled in private nonprofit elementary schools and secondary schools, or, with respect to instructional or personnel training programs funded by the State educational agency from funds made available for State educational agency use, the local educational agency, after consultation with appropriate private school officials (A) shall provide, as may be necessary, for the benefit of such children in such schools (i) secular, neutral, and nonideological services, materials, and equipment, including the participation of the teachers of such children (and other educational personnel serving such children) in training programs; and (ii) the repair, minor remodeling, or construction of public facilities (consistent with subsection (c)); or (B) if such services, materials, and equipment are not feasible or necessary in one or more such private schools, as determined by the local educational agency after consultation with the appropriate private school officials, shall provide such other arrangements as will assure equitable participation of such children in the purposes and benefits of this part. 28. Participation of Children Attending Private non profit schools NCLB Title VA C (2) PROVISION OF SERVICES- Services provided under this part shall be provided by employees of a public agency or through contract by such a public agency with a person, association, agency, or corporation that, in the provision of such services, is independent of the private school and of any religious organizations, and such employment or contract shall be under the control and supervision of such a public agency. The funds provided under this part shall not be commingled with State or local funds. Services provided by contractor or by district Any contractor must be a person or an association, agency, or corporation who or that, in the provision of the Title V-A services, is independent of the private school and any 11

12 religious organization. A public agency must supervise and have ultimate control over any contractor hired to provide Title V-A services. 29. Participation of Children Attending Private non profit schools Funding administration of Title VA LEAs pay the cost of administering Title V-A services for public and private school students off the top of their allocations, before calculating how much of the Title V-A funds are to be made available for services for public and private school students. [Section 5142(a) and (b)]. 30. Participation of Children Attending Private non profit schools NCLB Title VA 5142 (c) ADMINISTRATIVE REQUIREMENTS- (1) FUNDS AND PROPERTY- The control of funds provided under this part, and title to materials, equipment, and property repaired, remodeled, or constructed with such funds, shall be in a public agency for the uses and purposes provided in this part, and a public agency shall administer such funds and property. District Administration Requirements. The LEA also should perform periodic on-site monitoring of the use of the equipment and materials. The monitoring could include on-the-spot checks of the use of the equipment and materials, discussions with private school officials, and a review of any logs maintained. The control of Title V-A funds and the title to any equipment and materials purchased with those funds must remain in a public agency (usually the LEA). No Title V-A funds may be paid to any private school, and the title to equipment and materials may not be transferred to any private school. Title V-A services must be provided by a public agency either directly or through a contractor. 31. Participation of Children Attending Private non profit schools District Administration Requirements The services, materials, and equipment that an LEA provides for the benefit of participating private school students must be secular, neutral, and nonideological The LEA should mark all equipment and materials purchased with Title V-A funds so that they are clearly identifiable as Title V-A property of the LEA. The LEA also should maintain an up-to-date inventory of all Title V-A equipment and materials provided for the benefit of private school students. It is also a helpful practice for private schools to maintain logs to document the use of Title V-A equipment and materials located in their schools. 32. Participation of Children Attending Private non profit schools The LEA should designate one public school official to oversee Title V-A services for private school students and ensure that services, materials and equipment provided for 12

13 these students are secular, neutral, and nonideological. The designated official also should be responsible for receiving and handling any complaints or allegations that Title V-A funds are being used for improper activities for private school students. LEAs need to ensure that if any violations occur, they are corrected at once. An LEA must remove materials and equipment from a private school immediately if removal is needed to avoid an unauthorized use. 33. Participation of Children Attending Private non profit schools Private school officials should be fully informed of and agree to the limitations on the use of any equipment and materials located in the private school. LEAs should obtain from the appropriate private school official a written assurance that any equipment and materials placed in the private school will be used only for secular, neutral, and nonideological purposes; that private school personnel will be informed as to these limitations; and that the equipment and materials will supplement, and in no case supplant, the equipment and materials that, in the absence of the Title V-A program, would have been made available for the participating students. 13
