Displayed Data – Calculations, Allocation, and Required Reservations

Percent of nonprofit private school low income students for equitable service calculation: Data is calculated as a percentage of total participating nonprofit private school low income students count divided by total participating public and nonpublic private school low income students count.

2019–20 Title I, Part A LEA allocation: Source data from the CDE Title I, Parts A and D web page.

Nonprofit private school equitable services proportional share amount: Data is calculated by multiplying the 2019–20 Title I, Part A LEA allocation by the percent of nonprofit private school low income students for equitable services calculated above.

Minimum parent and family engagement reservation: An equitable services parent and family engagement reservation is required if the LEA allocation is greater than $500,000. If applicable, the reservation is automatically calculated and displayed. Data is calculated as one percent (1%) of the nonprofit private school equitable services proportional share amount.

Procedures – Equitable Services Required and Authorized Reservations
Step Action Program Instructions
2 Enter the amount reserved for Parent and Family Engagement.

Required field – amount must be equal to or greater than zero. If the LEA allocation is greater than $500,000, then the field is pre-populated with 100% of the minimum parent and family engagement reservation amount. The amount can be changed, but cannot be less than the minimum parent and family engagement reservation amount. Once the form is saved, the data will not auto-populate again.

3 Enter the amount reserved for Other Authorized Activities. Optional field subject to consultation with nonprofit private school(s).
4 Enter the amount of the Indirect Cost Reservation.

Optional field subject to consultation with nonprofit private school(s). The indirect cost rate (ICR) for federal programs is a rate previously approved by the CDE through the use of the Standardized Account Code Structure software ICR worksheet (Form ICR). Final approved rates are posted on the CDE ICR web page.

5 Enter the amount of the Administrative Reservation.

Optional field subject to consultation with nonprofit private school(s). Whether the LEA consolidates Title I, Part A funds with other ESSA programs, the maximum reservation allowable for administrative costs is 15% (the total of the Indirect Cost and Administrative Reservations). The 15% is to be used for activities or services that are not direct services to students at the school sites. The California Education Code Section 63001 requires LEAs to utilize no less than 85% at school sites for direct services to students, regardless of whether the services are centralized at the LEA level, managed by the school, or funded through LEA reservations.

Displayed Data - Reservation Summary
