Ins: Title I Part A LEA Allocation and Reservation

Consolidated Application Winter Release instructions for the 2018–19 Title I, Part A Local Educational Agency (LEA) Allocation and Reservations form.
Data Collection Purpose

The purpose of this data collection form is to calculate the Title I, Part A allocation available to the local educational agency (LEA).

Guidance

The reservations for parent and family engagement are to carry out the provisions of Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) Section 1118, including promoting family literacy and parenting skills. An LEA that receives a Title I, Part A allocation greater than $500,000 must reserve not less than one percent of its Title I, Part A allocation to carry out the provisions of ESSA Section 1118[a][3][A] “Parent and Family Engagement.” Ninety percent of the reserved funds must be distributed to schools.

The reservations for Local Institutions for Neglected Children, Local Institutions for Delinquent Children, and or Neglected or Delinquent Children in Community Day School Programs are for direct services as well as indirect services to eligible Title I, Part A students.

The Title I, Part A Neglected Reservation is only required by the LEA if there are students in an eligible institution for neglected children and youth and if these neglected children and youth attend a non-Title I school.

Under ESSA sections 1113(c)(3)(B) and (C) LEAs are required to reserve funds to provide services for neglected children that are comparable to those received by students who attend non-Title I funded schools.

The reservations for Homeless Children are for direct services as well as indirect services regardless of their school of attendance.

For more information, please refer to the Title I, Part A LEA Allocation web page; the Title I, Part A Reservations web page; and the Title I, Part A Neglected Reservation web page.
