Select Charter School Administrators:

New and Expanding Charter Schools Application for Title III Immigrant Student Program Subgrant

Under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), Title III, the California Department of Education (CDE) provides formula subgrant awards to local educational agencies (LEAs) that demonstrate a significant increase in the enrollment of immigrant students. The Title III Immigrant Student Program subgrant funds are to be used to provide supplementary programs and services to immigrant students.

Based on the estimated data reported in the 2019 Pupil Estimates for New or Significantly Expanding Charters Report, your LEA is identified as eligible for the Title III Immigrant Student Program Subgrant in fiscal year (FY) 2019–20 funding. The preliminary per-pupil amount in FY 2019–20 is $95.53.

All eligible LEAs must annually apply for Title III Immigrant Student Program subgrant funding on the Consolidated Application and Reporting System (CARS). Additionally, using the Title III Immigrant Student Program Subgrant Budget form on CARS, LEAs must provide a program budget showing how the projected subgrant funds will be used. Information regarding the CARS application process is available on the CDE CARS web page at https://www.cde.ca.gov/fg/aa/co/cars.asp. LEAs must accept assurances that they will comply with the legal requirements and annual reporting responsibilities related to state or federal programs, and as a condition of funding, must keep copies of the assurances on file.

Eligibility and funding status may change once the actual data is reported via the California Longitudinal Pupil Achievement Data System. LEAs who participate in the Title III Immigrant Student Program Subgrant must maintain locally updated plans that describe how the LEAs will use the funds to serve identified immigrant students.

Information regarding program requirements is available on the CDE Request for Applications web page at https://www.cde.ca.gov/fg/fo/r28/imm19rfa.asp. Subgrantee allocations are posted on the CDE Title III English Learner and Immigrant Programs web page at https://www.cde.ca.gov/fg/aa/ca/titleiii.asp. All LEAs applying for ESSA funds must complete the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) Federal Addendum as part of meeting the requirements for the ESSA LEA Plan. The LCAP Addendum must be submitted and approved through the CDE LCAP Federal Addendum System at https://www2.cde.ca.gov/lcapfas, on or before January 15, 2020, in order to be included in the 2019−20 funding year.
