SUBJECT: Revisions to 2016-2017 Title I, Part A, and Title I, Part D, Subpart 2, Allocations under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965(ESEA)

This communication is to inform you of revisions to the 2016-2017 Title I, Part A, and Title I, Part D, Subpart 2, allocations that were released through Superintendent’s Memorandum 228-16, dated September 16, 2016. The 2016-2017 funding allocations were revised because PL 114-113, the Continuing Appropriations and Military Construction, Veterans Affairs, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2017, and Zika Response and Preparedness Act, includes a 0.496 percent reduction in the amount of funds provided through PL 114-113 that is in effect during the duration of the Act.  The revised Title I, Part A allocations also incorporate corrections submitted to the U.S. Department of Education by some states to their state per-pupil expenditure data since July 1, 2016. 

Attachment A contains the revised 2016-2017 allocations for all school divisions. An amendment to the 2016-2017 application and a budget transfer must be submitted through the OMEGA system.
