Agenda Item #37


Title
Application for CWT/SES Funds Under NCLB

Discussion

The NCLB law requires that each district set aside 20% of its Title I Part A allocation to provide Choice with Transportation (CWT) and Supplemental Educational Services (SES) to eligible students in Title I schools identified for improvement. This application confirms that the district will use the funds only for these two purposes as required. Any students whose home school is in the second year of the improvement process or later is eligible for CWT. Any student who is eligible for free or reduced price meals and whose home school is in the first year of improvement or later is eligible to receive SES, which consists of after-school tutoring provided by a company approved by the State and selected by the student's parent.

A complete copy of the grant application is available on-line or from the Title I Office.



Recommendation
Approve the district's application for Choice with Transportation and Supplemental Educational Services funds under the NCLB law.
