Instructions: 2017-18 Title IV Allocations

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

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


Guidance

Charges by the district may include indirect costs and any repayment of funds. The maximum reservation allowable for administrative costs is 15 percent, including indirect costs. The 15 percent is to be used for activities or services that are not direct services to students at the school sites. California Education Code Section 63001 requires LEAs to utilize no less than 85 percent at school sites for direct services to students, regardless of whether the services are centralized, managed by the school, or funded through LEA reservations.
