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?
Meghan D
20:35
yes
Amy Beruan
22:27
did dps include neighboring district students in their count?
Linda Weyers
24:08
Do we use FRL numbers from 19-20 or the numbers we will be reporting for 20-21?
Lora Langlee
24:44
Yes, DPS included Neighboring District Title I eligible students.
Laura Gorman
26:44
So DPS only gave charters FRL count allocations? Why didn't you do per pupil for all students?
Laura Gorman
27:48
Is DPS using ESSER for all students at district level or only Title I schools?
Patricia Reitwiesner
31:57
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?
Amy Beruan
36:01
Will these funds pay for past due balances so families can connect again?
Lilian Pacheco
40:24
Can we get a waiver to reimburse non-public schools if a receipt is provided?
Laura Gorman
42:08
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?
Amy Beruan
42:26
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?
Kay Yang

Hello Amy,
Jennifer Okes
43:58
My apologies for the last minute slides that Adam is sharing. It was my fault that these are late!
MARJORIE WICKHAM
44:37
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?
Jennifer Okes
45:31
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.
Laura Gorman
47:00
So, Q2 tab is still only July-Sept correct?
Kate Bartlett
47:50
Marjorie Wickham, those expenses should be allowable for CRF as they are connected to COVID response.
MARJORIE WICKHAM
48:25
Thank you!
Alicia Hancock
54:25
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?
Laura Gorman
54:45
Is just additional BASE need allowable -- nothing was cut, but there could be additional need?
Meghan D
54:47
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?
Jennifer Austin
55:11
Yes, just document it!
Jennifer Austin
56:06
Remember when you document indicate the climate, the level of closure or restriction, etc., to provide a good picture of the situation.
Laura Gorman
57:12
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?
Meghan D
59:39
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?
Laura Gorman
01:00:09
What about a data analyst for COVID dashboard for Time & Effort?
Laura Gorman
01:00:14
I think you just answered
Meghan D
01:01:21
a little, but I'm used to it with other grants. Thanks!
Amy Beruan
01:02:52
Can you send it out ASAP- waiting another week for this information with a deadline in a month is problematic...
Jennifer Austin
01:04:12
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 :)
Amy Beruan
01:05:32
Thanks
Jeremiah Johnson
01:06:16
Do you know what the spend deadline will be?
Greg Fieth
01:07:03
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?
Joanne Vergunst
01:07:49
we are offering free meals to everyone so not as many families are completing the FRL applications; may negatively impact our at-risk numbers
Laura Gorman
01:08:06
yes, we typically pass the at-risk to our charters, so that will be important to know
Joanne Vergunst
01:08:17
also large postion of virtual only students may not be completing FRL applications
Meghan D
01:08:19
yes with what Joanne said
Greg Fieth
01:08:39
Thanks!
Alicia Hancock
01:08:47
So, the calculation is based on an increase from the budgeted at-risk, not from last year's actual at-risk?
Patricia Petrukitas
01:09:41
Sorry I missed will there be a new grant code for this new/next CRF fund allocation?
Tracey Stowers
01:10:15
Is this money going to have a completely different grant code?
Mimi Livermore
01:10:32
When is it due?
Amy Beruan
01:10:51
is there any more talk about a waiver for rank order for title I?
Mimi Livermore
01:11:27
When is the free lunch extension due?
Jennifer Austin
01:11:28
Yes new grant code entirely, new workbook for reporting but will be identical, same categories and same due dates.
Laura Gorman
01:11:45
Just to be clear -- this at-risk is treated as a grant not a type of per pupil?
Catherine Felsmann
01:11:55
are the distribution amounts for the district posted for this grant?
Patricia Petrukitas
01:12:15
thank you
Meghan D
01:12:57
Do the same CRF guidance apply for expenditures?
Amy Beruan
01:13:32
Thanks Delilah!
Jeremiah Johnson
01:15:47
thanks for everything
Laura Gorman
01:15:49
Thank you so much!!
Patricia Reitwiesner
01:15:56
Thanks all!
