Narrative amendments still have to have Board approval right?
Laura Gorman
37:28
Have allocations been posted?
CDE: Niko Kaloudis

Allocations: https://www.cde.state.co.us/cdefisgrant/allocations

Adams 12-Meghan Deutsch
38:55
If we have to track the funds separately, go back to the board for any changes to our narrative, and its considered supplemental - why should we not be doing a separate IDEA narrative, like all of the other ESSER applications we've done.
CDE: Niko Kaloudis
39:03
Preschool: https://www.cde.state.co.us/cdefisgrant/ideapreschoolfy2122

Does the budget need to be submitted before obligation of funds can begin?
Adams 12-Meghan Deutsch
40:31
Do we have to re-consult with nonpublics to let them know about the additional ARP funds?
CDE: Niko Kaloudis
41:21
Indirect Cost Rates: https://www.cde.state.co.us/cdefinance/icrc
Greg Fieth
41:57
If we need to submit by 10/1/21, can we use placeholder tags similar to ESSER III for future years?
Adam Williams
42:17
Sorry if I missed some of this but:
Laura Gorman
42:19
Are there 2 budgets required -- 1 for regular & 1 for preschool or is it all one?
Adam Williams
42:20
Do expenses for our IDA have to match the current narrative? For example if we want to do something different than our narrative do we have to update our idea narrative in order to use the ARP Esser funds? How does that work with compliance if we are using our narrative for supplemental funds from Esser?
Adam Williams
42:43
Where do we locate the application for idea ARP funds?
Laura Gorman
48:39
So, ARP IDEA is only until Sept. 2023 & not like the other ESSER 3 where it is Sept. 2024 correct? So, one year less of availability?
Adams 12-Meghan Deutsch
49:07
How do you audit the ESSER IDEA ARP if the narrative is co-mingled? - I get the the Feds say their isn't a need, but that doesn't mean CDE can't create something similar to the current IDEA narrative.
Laura Gorman
51:26
Who has access to the budgets to complete? Can the person that had ESSER 2 supplemental also have access? Sorry, not sure how it's set up. Thinking fed programs people work with our Special Education staff on these, not just special education staff.
Adams 12-Meghan Deutsch
51:32
Does the IDEA ARP have separate assurances like all the other ESSER's have?
Mimi Livermore - Adams 12
52:24
Going back to the narrative- understanding we can submit a revision. If a district plans to add to their current narrative, why can't this be considered a new narrative and apply only to the ARP allocation. Keeping the narratives and the funding separate seems consistent with everything we've done to this point. Co-mingling seems like it may cause problems down. Can having two narratives be a district decision?
Adam Williams
53:49
Thanks
Moira Hawks
57:34
Will these funds impact our MOE?
Adam Williams
58:05
When will we get notification and directions on rewriting our narrative?
Adam Williams
59:49
If at all possible, it would be incredibly helpful to have the answers to these questions typed into chat. Thanks.
Adams 12-Meghan Deutsch
01:00:54
In general the current IDEA application is clunky (at best), with no communication from CDE. If it’s not going to be set up similar to the current ESSER applications (which have run a lot smoother) then I would request CDE as a whole, provide better communication around these funds - approval, denials, revisions, everything.
Moira Hawks
01:02:56
Thank you.
Jeremiah Johnson
01:04:54
Once you are complete with the ARP IDEA portion, can i ask a question regarding the ARP HCY (homeless) application. What is the begin date that costs can be incurred for this grant? Want to make sure we are spending correctly. Thank you.
Adams 12-Meghan Deutsch
01:06:02
Once the narrative window closes on 9/13, will we be back to the standard IDEA narrative revision windows? - currently ESEER allows for more flexible revision windows, will we have that option with our ARP IDEA especially if we put in a contingency?
Laura Gorman
01:06:05
In regard to Jeremiah's question are the ARP formula allocations for homeless posted somewhere? We didn't seem to receive this information, just the competitive application
Jennifer Austin
01:06:32
Let me look it up, right now, re Homeless
Donna Crawford
01:06:33
@Laura, I am curious about this too.
Jennifer Austin
01:07:14
The ARP HOMELESS Allocations are being reviewed right now. We have calculated and have a meeting in 10 minutes to review the allocations and approve.
CDE - Steven Kaleda
01:07:43
I believe Matthew Freeman will be the Grants Analyst on the ARP HCY (Homeless) so he maybe able to provide some information
Jennifer Austin
01:07:47
Laura, I assume you meant the open Homess Application right now, right.
Laura Gorman
01:07:57
Thanks Jennifer -- will they be posted in same place that other ARP allocations are on grants fiscal? If you don't know that's fine.
Jeremiah Johnson
01:08:28
thanks!
Jennifer Austin
01:08:44
I am hoping they will be posted in same place with a link to the Homeless Page.
Jennifer Austin
01:09:42
We would like to have Homeless folks to also present in OFfice Hours on the funds, waiting to hear if they are agreeable to do it.
Donna Crawford
01:10:12
Will the Homeless ARP formula funds be a separate application?
Mandi Birge
01:11:08
I completely agree Meghan. Thank you!
Adam Williams
01:11:16
Where will the application be for the homeless funds? And this is round 2 of the homeless funds, correct?
Brandi S
01:11:24
We noticed that the allocation for ESSER III was changed June 25th and posted on CDE's website July 15. Was this already communicated in Office Hours?
MPS - Emily Walton
01:12:56
Am I correct in my understanding that the IDEA ARP funding also needs to be split out with outside schools (for example, Connections Academy)?
CDE - Steven Kaleda
01:14:33
Allocations did slightly go up
CDE - Steven Kaleda
01:15:13
and applies to the 1/3 that has not been received yet.
Jennifer Austin
01:15:36
Hey guys ,I have to jump off. I will forward information regarding application for the HCY Homeless II info to Nazi to get out to everyone.
MPS - Emily Walton
01:15:38
thanks!
Brandi S
01:15:50
Thank you Steven!
Jeremiah Johnson
01:16:37
you are awesome. Thanks CDE
Lynne, Juniper Ridge Community School
