SUBJECT:

Title I Data Collection for School Year 2001-2002

 

The U.S. Department of Education requires states to submit information annually on local programs conducted through the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, Title I, Parts A, C, and D. The U.S. Department of Education has recently released the revised requirements for the 2001-2002 Consolidated Performance Report and has given states a quick turnaround time to respond. In order to meet the federal reporting deadline, school evaluation data must be submitted to the Virginia Department of Education on or before Tuesday, May 23, 2003.

 

This year, two changes in the Title I data collection process should be noted:

 

 

 

Each division Title I coordinator should manage the collection of the data for the division and submit one consolidated report through the e-mail submission process. A copy of the data collection tool, with instructions for consolidating individual school data and submitting the report, is available at the following website: http://www.pen.k12.va.us/VDOE/Publications/TITLEI/datacoll/coll.htm

 

The Department of Education has contracted with a data collection consultant to assist in this process. Please direct any questions or comments regarding the Title I data collection process to Susan Frierson (TITLEONE@mail.vak12ed.edu), at (804)740-1469.

 

For additional questions regarding the new Title I data collection process, please contact Brenda Spencer, (bspencer@mail.vak12ed.edu), specialist, Office of Compensatory Programs, at (804) 371-6201.
