Can the same approval and transmittal letter for ESSER be used for this? Just thinkin in terms of timeliness for Board to sign that form,
Are charter schools required to route their application through the LEA or can they apply directly? Are there any estimates on the projected size of the awards?
Is an allowable expense still salaries for increased learning time between Spring 2020 and Fall 2020?
Does invited mean- required?
What is reasonable expense for HVAC?
Charters are required to route through their LEA.
Does that mean the LEA must submit each application on behalf on every charter or the approval and transmittal form must be routed to the district?
Are we required to allocate funds to the Charters?
Reasonable expense would be market value, what they 'normally' go for. May be good to document that.
Are we safe to assume that expenses back to March or July 1 would be allowable?
Charters are doing individual applications so you know. As a district we are doing our own application, not including charters. They have already applied on their own & notified us.
July 1 forward
Is the district required to be in person learning to apply for the grant based on that question and answer?
Did you say you will look at high at risk only if you have too many requests? As a large district with the same issues as everyone else, but not high FRL and CRF was not necessarily that way as was ESSER, why is that a consideration?
What about timeliness of receiving goods. I know accruals have been mentioned, but if we were to apply and make a purchase as soon as we are approved, there could still be an easy 6-12 wk lead time due to lots of needs around PPE, Remote learning, etc from lots of Districts. Would that even be allowable?
they are different
I'm confused, if charters put in an application & list the district as the contacts as mentioned in the slide, can't they submit the application in the
Megan, yes it would be allowable. When reviewing those expenditures KPMG will take into consideration the date of the award to the LEA.
in addition, there is a provision in the OMB FAQ that an awardee can purchase 'stock' of PPE, etc. I will go over than shortly.
Sorry I hit return -- but can't a charter submit an application with all the right contacts separate from the district submitting one for neighborhood schools
I indicated it was really market value and their application for HVAC
for items not arriving by 12/30 - DOCUMENT DOCUMENT DOCUMENT on the delay and issues ...
So will all applications be looked at with Priority for high FRL or only if you don't have enough money to meet the requests? I did hear the reasoning, but if the funds only go to those with high FRL, that won't be our charters likely or district.
Do we need to prove in the application that we will be able to spend all of CRF funds first?
A few questions, please, on behalf of my Technology Team. (1) Is there a need to track “non-serialized assets” (e.g. wireless mics priced at $59 each)? If so, is there a price threshold of what assets we need to track? (2) We have collected the serial numbers of all the iPads we purchased with COVID funds. Whenever we service a broken device (students never break iPads, right?) the device is replaced by Apple with a new device (with a new serial number). Do we need to track these device exchanges? And, (3) Are there any special considerations that need to be taken into account when we retire an asset (lost/missing, severely damaged, etc.)? What about when we eventually want to sell these devices as part of our Tech Buyback program?
If we follow the rule of 3 hours of instruction in the spring and code the 3 to 4 additional hours of instruction time for fall of 2020 will this suffice for the CRF funds for salaries for teachers?
Is there a sample form or guidance on providing proof of time and effort?
If payroll runs and posts before December 30th then a district can use those actual numbers for the CRF report?
Thank you, Jennifer!
I want to double check this allowable?
This would be 4012 funds.
Yes, this answers my question.
Increased instruction time
For CRF eligibility - If a Charter school pays for an HVAC "tune-up" to ensure proper air flow and repair any broken parts, like fan belts or capacitor, is that allowable? Or is that more of a "normal" maintance thing.
if we have charter schools, we will be required to also send you ledgers for every school because they have their own general ledgers. This could be a huge set of files. Will there be a site to upload documents given the size restrictions on some emails.
Our pcards are a month in arrears so how do we address this when they won't post until the end of January. In other words our financials won't match due to timing issues.
I found a mistake in my Q2 4012 workbook. I reported more in salary then was spent. How do I make this correction? Do I match the quarters to my system or do I report less in Q3?
Debra Myers - yes, you can make the correction. You will NET IT OUT on the Q3 tab, does that make sense?
Hi Everyone, I am so sorry for the abrupt transition to the next speakers and rushing through the CRF questions. We have heard from districts that they need ideas on how to support students who are experiencing homelessness using ESSER funds. So, we wanted to share some ideas around that. Please feel free to continue to chat questions about CRF. Thanks,
I am so sorry I was long winded guys, if anyone has any questions, as always, email me email@example.com
I'm still not clear on the SSRG applications and charters. Are the charters able to apply on their own with district signatures?
Charter Schools can submit the application. The charter school must work with the district to complete the Authorized Representative and Authorized Requester sections of the application. The District is required to signed the Approval and Transmittal form. It is recommended that the district provide guidance and or a process for charter schools to complete the application.
What is the timing of that expiration -- is it still anticipated to be January for evictions? Right now we have families being evicted -- isn't there a governor moratorium on that right now?
Thank you, DeLilah
What about a Para for a Homeless student that is Spanish speaking
For transportation for students experiencing homelessness - does this have to come in the form of District school bus transportation or can we use services like UBER or Lyft?

Catherine- any transportation option is considered allowable (taking into account cost efficiency)
I could be wrong, but I thought using the restricted rate, we didn't have to back out capital equipment?
yes the example is showing that the capital eequipment is being backed OUT of total direct costs.
135020-64295 = x multiplied by ICR rate
I have never heard that capital equipment doesn't need to be backed out if using a restricted rate.
you can take the TOTAL award divided by 1+ ICR Rate, will give you what the TOTAL direct costs allowable to be able to claim all the ICR allocable to you with the exception of the capital equipment.

I have not drawn down any funds yet, but should I anticipate a problem?
Yes Jen, your example is perfect!
did you mean me Nazi?
I was planning on requesting funds spent for the first 4 months in the salaries that I have paid out in the ESSER funds.
you're explaining it way better than me!
Yes it does. Thank you.
I am sorry my sound just cut out on my computer. Thank you for the information today.
sorry I talked so much everyone!
Thank you. Hope you can enjoy a restful and relaxing Thanksgiving!
Happy Turkey Day
