The Department encourages States to use electronic means to collect and transmit the information requested in this survey in order to reduce burden.

PURPOSE: The purpose of this annual report is to provide the Department of Education (ED) with data required by Title I, Part A, of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), as amended by Public Law 103-382, for use in computing formula allocations to local educational agencies (LEAs).

REQUIREMENTS: The information in this report must be submitted annually by all State educational agencies (SEAs) in order for ED to establish a prior year base on which to determine Ahold-harmless@ guarantees for each LEA when computing Title I, Part A allocations. No sampling or estimating may be used in preparing this report. Since these data are a critical element in the statutory Title I formula used to distribute Federal funds, they are subject to audit and must be supportable from documented records.

  2. Allocation data - Enter separately the allocation amount for school year 1998-1999 of each LEA and the amount each State retained for Part D, Subpart 2 purposes for (1) Basic Grants, authorized in Title I, Part A, section 1124 of ESEA, (2) Concentration Grants, authorized in section 1124A of Title I, and (3) Targeted Assistance Grants, authorized in section 1125 of Title I. Please list all of the LEAs in your State, furnish a total amount for each LEA, and provide a grand total for the State. If the State educational agency (SEA) allocates no Title I, Part A funds to an LEA because it is ineligible, show the amount as zero.

Do not include carryover, reallocation, or Title I, Part D, Subpart 2 funds in the LEA allocation data submitted.

    Note, if the SEA allocates funds to LEAs that are not on the list provided by ED, please be sure to include those LEAs and the Title I, Part A amounts allocated to them for SY 1998-1999 when submitting the information required by this survey form to ED.
