I. Funding Opportunity Description
Purpose of Program: The Safe Schools/Healthy Students (SS/HS)
program supports the implementation and enhancement of integrated,
comprehensive community-wide plans that create safe and drug-free
schools and promote healthy childhood development.
Priorities: These priorities are from the notice of final
priorities, requirements, selection criteria, and definitions for this
program, published in the Federal Register on May 10, 2007 (72 FR
Note: Definitions for important terms associated with this
competition (e.g., authorized representative, local juvenile justice
agency) can be found in the notice of final priorities,
requirements, selection criteria, and definitions published in the
Federal Register on May 10, 2007 (72 FR 26692).
Absolute Priority: For FY 2009 and any subsequent year in which we
make awards from the list of unfunded applicants from this competition,
this priority is an absolute priority. Under 34 CFR 75.105(c)(3) we
consider only applications that meet this priority.
This priority is:
Comprehensive Plan: This priority supports projects of local
educational agencies (LEAs) proposing to implement an integrated,
comprehensive community-wide plan designed to create safe, respectful,
and drug-free school environments and promote prosocial skills and
healthy childhood development. Plans must focus activities, curricula,
programs, and services in a manner that responds to the community's
existing needs, gaps, or weaknesses in areas related to the five
comprehensive plan elements:
Element One--Safe School Environments and Violence Prevention
Element Two--Alcohol, Tobacco, and Other Drug Prevention
Element Three--Student Behavioral, Social, and Emotional Supports.
Element Four--Mental Health Services.
Element Five--Early Childhood Social and Emotional Learning
Competitive Preference Priority: For FY 2009 and any subsequent
year in which we make awards from the list of unfunded applicants from
this competition, this priority is a competitive preference priority.
Under 34 CFR 75.105(c)(2)(i) we award an additional 5 points to an
application that meets this priority.
This priority is:
LEAs That Have Not Previously Received a Grant or Services Under
the Safe Schools/Healthy Students Initiative: Under this priority, we
give priority to applications from LEAs that have not yet received a
grant under this program as an applicant or as a member of a
consortium. In order for a consortium application to be eligible under
this priority, no member of the LEA consortium may have received a
grant or services under this program as an applicant or as a member of
a consortium applicant.
Application and Eligibility Requirements. The applicant must meet
the following requirements, which are from the notice of final
priorities, requirements, selection criteria, and definitions for this
program published in the Federal Register on May 10, 2007 (72 FR
(1) Program-Specific Assurances for Former SS/HS Grant Recipients.
For those LEAs that have previously received funds or services (or for
those LEA consortia that include a member LEA that has received funds
or services) under the SS/HS program, a program-specific assurance must
be submitted as part of the SS/HS application. All participating LEAs
in a proposed consortium project must sign this program-specific
assurance. The assurance must state that, if awarded, the project will
not serve those schools or sub-regions served by the first SS/HS
project. Applications from prior SS/HS grant recipients (or from a
consortium that includes an LEA that has previously received SS/HS
funds or services) that do not include the program-specific assurance
will be rejected and not considered for funding.
(2) Funding Limits for Applicants. An applicant's request for
funding must not exceed the following maximum amounts, based on student
enrollment data, for any of the project's four 12-month budget periods:
$2,250,000 for an LEA with at least 35,000 students; $1,500,000 for an
LEA with at least 5,000 students but fewer than 35,000 students; and
$750,000 for an LEA with fewer than 5,000 students. In applying these
maximums, applicants must use the most recent student enrollment data
from the National Center for Education Statistics' (NCES) Common Core
of Data (CCD) as posted on the NCES Web site. In the case of consortium
applicants, the maximum funding request is based on the combined
student enrollment data for the participating LEAs. Department of the
Interior, Bureau of Indian Education-funded schools that are not
included in the NCES database and request grant funds that exceed
$750,000 for any of the project's four 12-month budget periods must
provide documentation of enrollment data.
(3) Preliminary Memorandum of Agreement (MOA). Each applicant must
include in its application a preliminary MOA that is signed by the
authorized representatives of the LEA, the local juvenile justice
agency, the local law enforcement agency, and the local public mental
health authority--the required SS/HS partners. For consortium
applicants, the preliminary MOA must be signed by the authorized
representatives of each member LEA and by the authorized
representatives of each corresponding required SS/HS partner for each
member LEA. Additionally, the preliminary MOA must:
(a) Include information that supports the selection of each
identified SS/HS required partner that has signed the preliminary MOA;
(b) Demonstrate the support and commitment of the required SS/HS
partners to implement and sustain the project if funded;

representation of the project in chart format) that identifies needs or
gaps and connects those needs or gaps with corresponding project goals,
objectives, activities, partners' roles, outcomes, and outcome measures
for each of the SS/HS elements.
Applications that do not include the preliminary MOA signed by the
authorized representatives of each of the required SS/HS partners (the
LEA, the local juvenile justice agency, the local law enforcement
agency, and the local public mental health authority) and the logic
model will be rejected and not considered for funding.
(4) Final MOA. If funded, grant recipients must complete a final
MOA. The final MOA must be signed by the authorized representatives of
the LEA, the local juvenile justice agency, the local law enforcement
agency, and the local public mental health authority--the required SS/
HS partners. For consortium applicants, the final MOA
must be signed by the authorized representative for each member LEA and
the authorized representative for each of the corresponding required
SS/HS partners for each member LEA. The final MOA must also include the
(a) Information that supports the selection of each identified SS/
HS required partner that has signed the final MOA;

Note: The Secretary limits eligibility under the SS/HS grant
program competition (CFDA Number 84.184L) to applicants that do not
currently have an active grant under this grant program. For the
purpose of this eligibility requirement, a grant is considered
active until the end of the grant's project or funding period,
including any extensions of those periods that extend the grantee's
authority to obligate funds. This eligibility requirement is from
the notice of final eligibility requirement published in the Federal

2. Cost Sharing or Matching: This competition does not require cost
sharing or matching.

(ESEA) requires that LEAs or other entities receiving funds under the
Safe and Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act provide for the
equitable participation of private school children, their teachers, and
other educational personnel in private schools located in areas served
by the grant recipient. In order to ensure that grant program
activities, curricula, programs, and services address the needs of
private school children, LEAs must engage in timely and meaningful
consultation with private school officials during the design and
development of the program. This consultation must take place before
any decision is made that affects the opportunities of eligible private
school children, teachers, and other educational personnel to
Administrative direction and control over grant funds must remain
with the grantee.
(b) Maintenance of Effort. Section 9521 of the ESEA provides that
LEAs may receive a grant only if the State educational agency finds
that either the combined fiscal effort per student or the aggregate
expenditures of the LEA and the State with respect to the provision of
free public education by the LEA for the preceding fiscal year was not
less than 90 percent of the combined fiscal effort or aggregate
expenditures for the second preceding fiscal year.
