if we choose as a dist to support all enrollment for non public schools we can continue this way or do we have to redo and only count their T1 students for ESSER funding?
did dps include neighboring district students in their count?
Do we use FRL numbers from 19-20 or the numbers we will be reporting for 20-21?
Yes, DPS included Neighboring District Title I eligible students.
So DPS only gave charters FRL count allocations? Why didn't you do per pupil for all students?
Is DPS using ESSER for all students at district level or only Title I schools?
So, just to be sure I understand - we are not allowed to give our NPS per pupil allocations but MUST use the Sec. 1117 basis to determine their allocations - correct?
Will these funds pay for past due balances so families can connect again?
Can we get a waiver to reimburse non-public schools if a receipt is provided?
R we going to talk today about reporting on CRF and some changes that were alluded to in last office hours about guidance changes? I thought that was going to be discussed today per last week's office hours. Any updates on that?
RISE question about charter schools and their ability to apply without authorizing district's approval/notice. Can charters apply without notifying an LEA? When looking at the application, there is no indication that a charter must get a sign off from their authorizer. Is that the intention of the Governor's office?
My apologies for the last minute slides that Adam is sharing. It was my fault that these are late!
CRF Question: Is employee leave (up to 80 hrs) and substitute costs allowable for days not worked waiting for COVID test results when the District requires an employee to get tested for COVID due to state guidelines before coming back to work and if the results are negative. Would the employee leave and sub pay still be allowable?
Amy Beruan, we have a slide that mentions charters applying for RISE funds. We are meeting with the Governor's Office tomorrow to clarify this question. We will provide information once we have received clarification.
So, Q2 tab is still only July-Sept correct?
Marjorie Wickham, those expenses should be allowable for CRF as they are connected to COVID response.
Would overtime for our payroll clerk be considered admin costs? She is working overtime to process additional timesheets for extra duty pay due to covid?
Is just additional BASE need allowable -- nothing was cut, but there could be additional need?
What if we planned to continue at same levels, but due to social distancing we have to hire or have more staff available to separate students?
Yes, just document it!
Remember when you document indicate the climate, the level of closure or restriction, etc., to provide a good picture of the situation.
If we have hired FTE and all of their job is COVID related, can we just do the bi yearly Time & Effort documentation or do we have to do something monthly?
It was mentioned that some of the CRF reporting categories at the TOP of the report might be removed (instructional - salary, support-supplies, etc). Is that still possible?
What about a data analyst for COVID dashboard for Time & Effort?
I think you just answered
a little, but I'm used to it with other grants. Thanks!
Can you send it out ASAP- waiting another week for this information with a deadline in a month is problematic...
Absolutely, I should have an answer I am hoping in the next day or two and then will re-post the CRF Reporting workbook with updates if necessary :)
Do you know what the spend deadline will be?
What is the distribution methodology to districts if based on at-risk increase, distribution from district to charters? Will this have a separate grant code?
we are offering free meals to everyone so not as many families are completing the FRL applications; may negatively impact our at-risk numbers
yes, we typically pass the at-risk to our charters, so that will be important to know
also large postion of virtual only students may not be completing FRL applications
yes with what Joanne said
So, the calculation is based on an increase from the budgeted at-risk, not from last year's actual at-risk?
Sorry I missed will there be a new grant code for this new/next CRF fund allocation?
Is this money going to have a completely different grant code?
When is it due?
is there any more talk about a waiver for rank order for title I?
When is the free lunch extension due?
Yes new grant code entirely, new workbook for reporting but will be identical, same categories and same due dates.
Just to be clear -- this at-risk is treated as a grant not a type of per pupil?
are the distribution amounts for the district posted for this grant?
Do the same CRF guidance apply for expenditures?
thanks for everything
Thank you so much!!
