Title 1 Waiver - USD 505 Chetopa - St. Paul
Below you will find an explanation on a Title I waiver request that will be submitted on behalf of USD 505 Chetopa-St. Paul elementary schools. If you have any questions about the proposed waiver, please call Terri Ross at 620-236-7244.
Within the last 3 years, the district received permission from the Kansas State Department of Education to carry over more than 15% of its Title I allocation. The prior carryover included either Title I regular funds or Title I American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) funds or both. As a result, the district did not spend all of the 2010-2011 regular Title I allocation. The district is requesting an Ed-Flex waiver of the Title I carryover limitation of “once every 3 years” in order to carryover more than 15% of its 2010-2011 Title I allocation into 2011-2012. This waiver will allow us to us the money during the 2011-12 school year. The purpose of Title I is to help dis-advantaged students reach challenging State standards. Title I provides supplemental services primarily in reading and mathematics. These services are designed to address the needs of high-risk populations. Since Title I focuses on helping students meet state challenging standards, the goal is for each Title I school and the district to make adequate yearly progress (AYP) in reading and mathematics in 2011-2012.
