Overview of Title I
The collections that are overseen by our Division of Federal Programs are previous year data (2013-14 school year) and are on the 2014-15 PIMS calendar, right at the very front with other previous year collections, which I believe are all listed first on the 2014-15 calendar. Our Title I staff and student participation data collection is unrelated to the Programs Fact template. Our collection is the traditional staff and student information that, until last year, was collected on the old eGrants system. It is reported by LEA, as always, using the District Fact template. It is to include any student that was served in a Title I program of the LEA for any time period during the school year 2013-14. If you have the communique that our Regional Coordinators sent out, it also has a copy of the updated template that you should use to report the data.
Also, you should use the 2014-15 manuals, as they still contain the respective 2013-14 dates for our specific collections. There is one discrepancy that you will see on the sample data in Vol. 1. At press time, we were not absolutely certain that we would not be asked to provide Title I participation by LEP students by grade for 2013-14. Because of this, we left the “GRADE/LEP” row on the sample spreadsheet. But in fact, we do not need to collect this as in some previous years. Therefore it was removed from the actual reporting template. So the necessary categories to report by GRADE are PUBTAS (Targeted students), PUBSWP (Schoolwide students) and NONPUB (nonpublic students). Again, the report template reflects this late change.
Again, all of our DFP collection information for the 2013-14 school year is reflected in the 2014-15 PIMS Calendar and Manuals. A link to our Title I reporting template is also available on the PIMS homepage.
Just to clarify, as contained in the cover memo that was sent out by our Regional Coordinators, please refer Title I staff and student participation collection questions to Kelly Gallatin, School Choice collection questions to Norma Hull, and SES collection questions to Don McCrone, using the contact info provided in that memo. Also, it is important to note that, if your LEA chose not to participate in School Choice or SES in the 2013-14 school year, then no report is required for those programs.
