Instructions: 2017-18 Immigrant Allocations

Consolidated Application, Winter Release instructions for the 2017-18 Title III, Part A Immigrant, Local Educational Agency (LEA) Allocations and Reservations.
Data Collection Purpose

The purpose of this data collection is for the local educational agency (LEA) to calculate the total allocation amount available to the LEA for the Title III, Part A Immigrant program, and to report required reservations.


Recommended direct administration expenses for a fiscal year may not exceed two percent of such funds for the cost of administering the subgrant. LEA can apply its restricted indirect cost rate (ICR) to the portion of its subgrant that it does not reserve for direct administrative costs.

For more information regarding administrative costs, please see Procedure 915 on the California Department of Education (CDE) California School Accounting Manual (CSAM) web document(PDF; 5MB).
