SUBJECT: Final Title I Regulations (Amendments)
Attached for your use is a copy of the Title I final regulations that were published in the Federal Register on October 13, 1998 to amend the Title I regulations that were published on July 3, 1995. These final regulations update some provisions in Title I, Part A of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act that were affected by statutory provisions enacted after the July 3, 1995 regulations.
These regulations amend '200.8, Schoolwide Program Requirements, to allow a percentage of funds received by an LEA under Part B of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) to be combined with other Federal, State, and local funds to carry out any activities in a schoolwide program.
These regulations also amend '200.63, Exclusion of Supplemental State and Local Funds from Supplement, not Supplant and Comparability Determinations, to allow a State or LEA to exclude supplemental State and local funds that are expended in any school attendance area or school from both supplement, not supplant and comparability determinations under Parts A and C of Title I, as long as the supplemental State and local expenditures are for programs that meet the intent and purposes of Part A.
Please note that the no-wide-variance and construction changes proposed in the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking are not included in the final regulation.
We ask that you share these regulations with the districts in your state and all other pertinent personnel. Please feel free to contact me should you have any questions concerning these regulations.
