ESEA Office Hours - Shared screen with speaker view
Who can see your viewing activity?
Please feel free to type in questions as we go.
How does this apply to charter and private schools?
As far as costs go, will it be retroactive to mid-march or is it only for new activities for next year, in other words can you utilize these funds for distance learning we have already completed
Is the LEA application going to state that LEAs must do consultation with nonpublic schools?
If not used as Title I, then my understanding is that the nonpublic school count will be all students attending. Is this correct?
Can you share the link for the slide deck? Thanks!
Audio is struggling
Could you please go over the 90% again, audio was cutting out
Will you discuss how that reimbursement would work for non-publics since currently we cannot reimburse non-publics? Will this be an exception?
Can we use the funds to offset loss in revenues from tuition and/or Nutrition Services meal sales; we still are paying staff through the closure but no offsetting revenue
Do nonpublic schools get to be part of survey. Is equitable funding for nonpublic schools considered before or after LEA reimburses themselves for expenditures?
We have same question as Sandra at our district -- it goes to compensation
DPS would also be interested in discussing expenditures offset by loss of revenue if possible.
Park County RE2 would like to hear how the Food Service benefits are going to be handled.
For example we have preschool staff that we continue to pay and incur costs for salary and benefits. Since no preschool students are attending we are not able to collect tuition. We will lose over $200k in revenue for this.
Do we need a new consultation process for FY21 if we are already underway? Or do we only include NP schools that are participating FY20?
Perfect. Thank you
If a nonpublic school has not participated in Equitable services in the past, will they be allowed to participate for these emergency funds.
Just answered my question!!
Can they be used to supplant? ie. We have summer school planned and funds budgeted for them. Can we use these funds to pay for summer school now, so our current budgeted dollars can support costs that are not allowable under ESSERF?
Other allowable activities on CDE website includes “other activities to continue school operations and employment of existing staff”. This seems to suggest that the funds could be used to preserve jobs even if they are not jobs that would be allowable under ESEA. Is this correct?
survey - email@example.com
firstname.lastname@example.org for survey
To clarify, an additional outreach is required to advise NPs re: new CARES funding, including all NPs not just those that participate under T1?
How will the amounts for non public be calculated?
email@example.com. - survey
so just to clarify...we can use these funds for anything allowable in ESEA, IDEA, Perkins, there's no supplement/supplant, and no specific requirement to tie to Covid? But we can also use it for Covid-related expense if not specifically allowable in those other federal funds?
If you consolidate funds, which could cover a variety of things, sounds like you could pay for teachers salaries?
Are we going to have to track these expenditures or do time and effort, etc? Looking for what the fiscal requirements might be?
so if the Covid impact is a higher BS factor can we use it to offset payroll
ok thanks, I'll follow up and expand on my thinking in email
What's the guidance on charters? How do we determine their participation. Is there any requirement that it be based on a per pupil basis?
When will the applications be available?
The negative facotr
Budget Stabilization Factor
Budget stabilization factor
Is indirect allowable as normal?
There are districts that didn’t receive T1 funds this year. Create a competitive application for those districts to be able to receive CARE Act funds and relief because of COVID
For the questions being asked in the chat today, can the answers go to all? Thanks - appreciate it.
Where will we find the slides?
I understand these funds are not subject to Title l restrictions in terms of rank and order. Do they have to be distributed to schools equitably or can they be expended at the District level?
When CDE is ready to send ESSER applications to districts, who will be the recipient(s)?
FAQs will be posted on: https://www.cde.state.co.us/caresact/relieffund

Will this application look somewhat like what Consolidated looks like?
Will LEA's be responsible for GEAR's funds if Governor authorizes?
Will we have to spend first and then request funds?
That will most likely not work for BOCES members if the grant writer is the only authorized rep.
Authorizes to nonpublics
sorry typed too fast.
I believe her full questions is....Will LEA's be responsible for GEAR's funds if Governor authorizes to nonpublics?
Superintendents should receive the info from our consortium.
yes, thank you Erin
was trying to retype it all
Can you also find out about GEARs for charters -- one charter told me they can apply??
Worreid about the an additional burden on LEA's with GEAR's funds
For sending slide show, in case you need it: firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com. Thanks so much!
Can you clarify on the GEAR funding.
Thank you for these sessions and being so willing to share and ask questions.
Thank you! This was really helpful!
Where are the allocations posted for CARES? Grants Fiscal site?
they are also posted on the GF site
Thank you so much.
Greatly appreciate the update, thank you much!!
similar to Cons App will there be a post award revision?
perfect, thank you
Will these funds be assigned a grant number like 4010 for Title I
You might have to put them in an accrued revenue account (for the crossing fiscal years on a finance side_
Office hours again next week?
That's the CoP meeting next Thursday -- still office hours?
More clarification on ESSERF as you get it. Thanks!
Update on Governors’ Funds
Ok -- I know you record so that's ok
