Instructions: 2016-17 Title III Immigrant Report

Consolidated Application, Winter Release instructions for the 2016-17 Title III, Part A Immigrant Year-to-Date Expenditure Report, 18 Months.
Data Collection Purpose

The local educational agency (LEA) must report year-to-date (YTD) expenditures for the period of July 1, 2016, through December 31, 2017, from the Title III, Part A Immigrant Student Sub-grant program entitlement.


Guidance

Expenditures by the LEA may include administrative and indirect costs, and any repayment of funds. Administrative costs are any costs, indirect or direct, that are administrative in nature and support the management of a program. For more information regarding administrative costs, please see Procedure 915 on the California Department of Education (CDE) California School Accounting Manual (CSAM) (PDF; 5MB) Web page.

For LEAs that consolidate administrative funds, the maximum amount available for administrative costs is what is reasonable and necessary for the proper and efficient administration of the programs provided that the LEA budgets and expends at least 85 percent of the grant amounts at school sites for direct services to pupils. For more information regarding consolidation of administrative funds, please see Procedure 780 on the CDE CSAM (PDF; 5MB) Web page.

According to the CSAM, “Legal obligations are commitments made by an LEA to purchase goods or services immediately or in a future period.” To determine whether a financial commitment should be reported as an expenditure, please refer to the Code of Federal Regulations, Title 34 (34 CFR), Part 76, Section 707 on the United States (U.S.) Government Publishing Office External link opens in new window or tab. Web page.

Use the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) Section 3115 (e)(1) as a guide to determine allowable expenditures.
