Instructions: 2017–18 Title I, Part A Closeout

Consolidated Application Winter Release instructions for the 2017–18 Title I, Part A Closeout Report.
Data Collection Purpose

Report fiscal year (FY) expenditures to determine 2017–18 Title I, Part A unspent funds and compliance with the availability period.

Note: If the local educational agency has carryover funds to report, then effective 2019-20, this form must be certified annually.

Guidance

Under the federal Tydings Amendment, Section 421(b) of the General Education Provisions Act, any funds that are not obligated at the end of the federal funding period, July 1, 2017, through September 30, 2018, shall remain available for obligation for an additional period of 12 months, through September 30, 2019, within the limits specified in the Every Student Succeeds Act Section 1127.

This data collection is to report expenditures related to the FY 2017–18 Title I, Part A funds. The local educational agencies (LEAs) that reported a carryover amount in the Winter Release last year must report expenditures related to that carryover amount to ensure that 2017–18 Title I, Part A funds were spent by September 30, 2019. Any unspent funds from FY 2017–18 allocations must be returned to the California Department of Education (CDE).
