Greetings Superintendents and Federal Programs Directors:

The FY19 Title I School Improvement 1003 allocations for 2018-19 Comprehensive, Targeted, and Additional Targeted Support and Improvement identified schools have been released.
A guidance webinar has been pre-recorded to assist with completion of the FY19 application. It can be accessed by clicking the link provided below. The Funding Application, which must address the evidence-based interventions written in the school’s CSI, TSI or ATSI plan will be due on or before Friday, February 22, 2019. School teams are encouraged to utilize the Evidence-Based webpage to support efforts toward meeting this federal requirement.

Key Points to remember when developing your FY19 Application are:
• Intervention strategies must be data-informed and evidence-based, meeting the strong, moderate, or promising level of evidence;
• Specific school improvement roles must be assigned before being able to work within the system;
• Funding applications must be approved by the local school board;
• Funds must be obligated by September 30, 2020.
Please click the link provided to view the guidance webinar (1003 Guidance – Webinar) and the accompanying presentation (1003 Guidance – PowerPoint) for completing the funding application in MCAPS.
