Title I Waivers
ESEA Maintenance of Effort Waiver Request Form (ESSA)
The new MOE requirements, under ESSA, will first apply to LEAs that are eligible to receive FY 2017 funds under a covered program for the 2017-2018 school year. (MOE calculations for FY 2017 funds compare expenditures from State and local sources for free public education in FY 2016 (school year 2015-2016) with those from FY 2015 (school year 2014-2015)). (More information on the changes that ESSA makes to the MOE requirements is available at: https://www2.ed.gov/policy/elsec/leg/essa/essaguidance160477.pdf.) States must review whether the LEAs have failed to maintain effort in 1 of the 5 immediately preceding years. States with LEAs requesting waiver consideration must submit this updated spreadsheet for FY 2017 and beyond.
States requesting waiver consideration for FY 2016 or earlier would also fill out the form, except for Columns D and E on Form 3.
