Actual expenditures for each performance period within the grant period shall be reported to the California Department of Education (CDE) as part of regular grant management and administration. The table above details reporting information and timelines.

Combined LEA- and school-level expenditures will be submitted for each required report. In addition to expenditure data, Report 2 must also include the date that the local school board approved each school’s SPSA. If the CDE does not receive the required reports, funding may be delayed or the CDE may bill the LEA to recover funds distributed to the LEA.

Reported expenditures are used for the purpose of calculating the LEA’s apportionment. The use of federal funds must be consistent with the Office of Management and Budget’s (OMB) Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards; ESSA requirements, and requirements in the 2018‒19 ESSA CSI LEA Application for Funding.

The acceptance and approval of reported expenditures does not preclude the CDE in any way from conducting program monitoring or audits.
