Guidance: 2018–19 Title II Part A LEA Allocation

Consolidated Application Winter Release guidance for the 2018–19 Title II, Part A, local educational agency (LEA) Allocation form.

Title II, Part A funds are allocated based on the following formula:

  1. 20 percent based on the relative number of individuals age 5 through 17, and

  2. 80 percent based on the relative numbers of individuals age 5 through 17 from families with incomes below the poverty line, residing in the area the local educational agency (LEA) serves based on U.S. Census or state alternative poverty data.

Allocation amounts are adjusted for LEAs that fail to meet the federal maintenance of effort requirements and did not receive an approved federal waiver, pursuant to Section 8521 of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA).

LEAs have the option to consolidate and use Title II, Part A funds with other federal, state, and local funds for schoolwide programs pursuant to Section 1114 of the ESEA and Title 34 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Part 200, Subpart A, sections 200.25 through 200.29. Additional information such as program purposes, eligibility of schools, core elements, components, and benefits of a schoolwide program, is posted on the California Department of Education (CDE) Schoolwide Programs web page.

Pursuant to 2 CFR, Section 200.305(b)(9), interest earned amounts up to $500 per year may be retained by the non-federal entity for administrative expense. Any additional interest earned on federal advance payments deposited in interest bearing accounts must be remitted annually.

For additional information, please visit the CDE Title II, Part A Resources and Guidance web page.
