Dear County Superintendents of Schools, Auditors, and Treasurers:
This apportionment, in the amount of $5,107,039, is made from federal funds provided to the State under Title I, Part D, Subpart 2, Neglected, Delinquent, and At-Risk Youth, of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA), as amended by the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act of 2001 (PL 107-110). This apportionment is made to local educational agencies (LEAs) to provide programs that serve children and youth who are in locally operated correctional facilities or are attending community day programs for delinquent children and youth, and to provide assistance to children and youth who are neglected or at-risk of dropping out of school.
The amount apportioned to each LEA reflects final payment of their 2008-09 total entitlement. LEAs that requested Title I, Part D, Subpart 2 funds on the 2008-09 Consolidated Application, Part I, and that have a State Board of Education approved LEA Plan are included in this apportionment. Entitlement amounts initially calculated were revised to reflect an increase in the amount of funding allocated to Title I, Part D, Subpart 2. The amounts paid under this apportionment are listed on the schedule of apportionment posted on the California Department of Education (CDE) Categorical Programs Web site at http://www.cde.ca.gov/fg/aa/ca/.
The United States Department of Education (ED) award number for this apportionment is S010A080005. The Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance subprogram number is 84.010 (Title I Grants to Local Educational Agencies). This grant award is subject to the provisions of Title I and Title IX of the ESEA, as applicable, and the General Education Provisions Act. This grant is also subject to the Title I regulations in Part 200 of Title 34 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) and to the Education Department General Administrative Regulation (EDGAR) in 34 CFR parts 76 (except for 76.650-76.662 [participation of students enrolled in private schools]), 77, 80, 81, 82, and 85.
Funding is appropriated in Schedule (9) of Item 6110-134-0890 of the Budget Act of 2008 (Chapters 268 and 269, Statutes of 2008). The California sub-allocation (pass-through) number is Program Cost Account (PCA) 14357.
Under the federal Tydings Amendment, Section 421(b) of the General Education Provisions Act, 20 USC 1225(B), any funds that are not obligated at the end of the federal funding period, July 1, 2008, through September 30, 2009, shall remain available for obligation for an additional period of 12 months, to September 30, 2010.
Title 34 of the CFR, Section 80.21(i), requires that any interest earned by LEAs on federal dollars be returned to the ED at least quarterly. LEAs may keep interest amounts up to $100 per year for administrative expenses. LEAs should forward interest payments for remittance to the ED to:
