06-14-2011 Regular School Board Meeting
Agenda Item #39


Title
2011-2012 Grant Application for Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) Entitlement

Discussion

The IDEA, Part B Entitlement for 2011-12 is $15,579,700.  Of the total allocation, $862,707 is set aside for Proportionate Share for Parentally Placed Private School students.  The set aside leaves $14,716,993 for the Part B Entitlement.  In addition, separate from Entitlement is a PreK allocation of $478,627. 

The IDEA application specifies the use of funds.  Although the majority of the funds are in salaries for personnel (i.e., Instructional Assistants, Guidance Counselors, Social Workers, Behavior Techs/Analysts, Psychologists), funds are also used for contractual services with community agencies that provide services and supports to our students.  Funds are also used to support materials and equipment needs of classrooms and students as well as Professional Development for school staff.



Recommendation

Approve the proposal for expenditures of the IDEA Part B, Entitlement Grant for $15,579,700, which includes Proportionate Share, and the PreK Entitlement of $478,627.
