Declaration of Participation, NCLB Transferability and Maintenance of Effort for Federal Grants.
Declaration of Participation
The Declaration of Participation Report to be completed by your district in accordance with the Every Student Succeeds Act and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. This report is used to identify the number of students enrolled in area private non-profit and home schools. Federal programs participating in the Declaration of Participation are Title II, Part A-Supporting Effective Instruction; Title IV, Part A-Student Support and Academic Enrichment Grants; and IDEA-B - Individuals with Disabilities Education Act.
In addition to the programs listed above we have designed a separate form for the Title III - Language Instruction for English Learners (EL) and Immigrant Students program. This form will be used to identify the number of English Learner students and the number of Immigrant students enrolled in area private non-profit and home schools.
Documents pertaining to Declaration of Participation:
Transferability is the flexibility authority that permits State Educational Agencies (SEAs) and Local Educational Agencies (LEAs) the ability to transfer a portion of the funding they receive, by formula under certain Federal program, to allocations under other programs by effectively addressing more specifically identified programmatic needs.
- Coordination of federal program support can help maximize the impact of available resources to districts.
- Encourage districts to re-examine the way they spend federal K-12 formula grants to support student achievement by engaging federal grant staff, programs/offices supported by federal grants, and fiscal staff across the district. Assembling staff across the district that are touched by federal funds, including academic, programmatic, and fiscal staff, is important to ensure the agency develops cohesive policies.
