Revenues from the Federal Government - 7230
The objective of the Board is to provide the best educational services possible within resources available to the District. Federal grants and programs may provide helpful financial resources towards pursuing that objective. The Superintendent will develop procedures for the review and approval of all applications for grants from the federal government.
When staff recommend the District participate in an optional federally funded program, the Superintendent will receive detailed analysis regarding both the advantages to be realized from the program and the additional costs in terms of staff time, impact on existing programs and new obligations that the program may require. Before authorizing participation in such a program, the Superintendent will first determine that the advantages outweigh the disadvantages and that the program will not detract from other programs already in operation.
As part of the formal application process, the Board agrees to comply with all federal and state requirements that may be a condition to receipt of federal funds including, but not limited to:
- maintenance of fiscal records which show the receipt and disposition of federal funds;
- provision for eligible private school students to participate in programs and/or services designed for the educationally disadvantaged as well as other programs which are supported by Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) funds;
- provision for testing to identify targeted students as well as to measure program results; and
- provision for staff and parent involvement, program planning, budget development and program evaluation.
The District agrees to comply with all requirements pertaining to the implementation of internal controls over the use of federal funds for travel, contracted services, training, and capital outlay purchases and other expenditures.
The District further assures that a District-wide salary schedule is in effect and that there is equivalence in assignment of administration, instructional and support staff between or among buildings. Additionally, the District also assures that services in buildings receiving funds from ESEA Title I, Part A or its successor are at least comparable to the services provided in schools that are not receiving ESEA Title I, Part A funds. The District also assures that there is equivalence among schools in the provision of curriculum materials and instructional supplies.
