SUBJECT:

Title I, Part A, Carryover Provisions Under the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB)

 

The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB), Section 1127, contains provisions that allow school divisions to carry over up to fifteen percent of their Title I, Part A, allocation for any fiscal year. Eighty-five (85) percent of the divisions total Title I, Part A allocation must be encumbered by September 30 of any given year. The provision also allows eligible school divisions to apply for a waiver to exceed the fifteen percent limitation once every three years. School divisions that wish to apply for a waiver must submit the request in writing to the Department of Education, Office of Program Administration and Accountability, prior to September 30 of each fiscal year.

 

Section 1126(c) of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB) mandates that the state education agency (SEA) has procedures for the reallocation of Title I, Part A, funds that have not been expended within the allotted fifteen month period of each program year. Attached are the Procedures for Reallocation of Title I, Part A, Funds that will be used beginning with the 2006-2007 school year if necessary.

 

If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact Shady Clark, Jr., Title I specialist at Shady.Clark@doe.virginia.gov or (804) 225-2901.
