This table describes the information in each column of the SRSA tab in the allocation spreadsheet linked above.

Column

Description

Column A

PR Award Number – Identifies the SRSA award in G5.gov

Column B

SRSA Allocation – The SRSA award amount for fiscal year 2018 (Note: The SRSA allocation formula can produce a $0 allocation if an LEA’s Title-IIA amount is larger than the initial calculation

(Columns C-I)

National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) - District directory information reported to NCES by State Common Core of Data (CCD) Coordinators

Column R

Final Program Cohort – LEAs in the SRSA program cohort have received an FY 2018 SRSA award allocation. LEAs in the RLIS program cohort may receive an RLIS award allocation from their States. RLIS-eligible LEAs should contact their REAP State Coordinator for more information about the State’s RLIS application process.

(Column S-T)

“Rural” criteria for SRSA, including the NCES locale code determinations for every school in the LEA,  and the list LEAs that meet an approved State definition of "rural"

(Columns U-W)

SRSA criteria for program eligibility – Districts that are both “rural” (by locale code) and “small” (by ADA or county population density of < 10 per square mile)

(Columns X-AA)

RLIS criteria for program eligibility – LEAs that are both “rural” (by locale code) and “low income” (by percentage of children from families with incomes below the poverty line)

(Column AB)

These are the FY 2016 Title II Part A allocations. These numbers are used in the allocation formula for the SRSA grant. (NOTE: For the FY 2019 award cycle, the Department intends to use FY 2017 allocation data from both the Title II-A and the Title IV-A programs when calculating SRSA award amounts.)

NOTE: LEAs are listed first by state, then by LEA name.

OR

1b. Each county in which a school served by the LEA is located has a total population density of fewer than 10 people per square mile;

AND
