SUBJECT:  NCLB LEA Improvement Plans and NCLB School Improvement Plans

LISTSERVE MESSAGE DATE:  October 21, 2011

Reminder:  NCLB LEA Improvement Plans and NCLB School Improvement Plans are Due to DESE on or before October 25th, 2011. 

LEA’s were notified on July 25th of their preliminary status for both LEA and buildings in Improvement.   Based on NCLB Law cited below, NCLB LEA Improvement Plans and NCLB School Improvement Plans must be submitted 3 months after this notification.  Therefore, all Improvement Plans are due to DESE on or before Tuesday, October 25th, 2011.

Under NCLB Law section 1116 (b)(3)(A)Revised Plan – each building identified for school improvement shall, not later than 3 months after being so identified, develop or revise a school plan, in consultation with parents, school staff and others.

Under NCLB Law section 1116 (c)(7)(A) Plan - each local educational agency identified for school improvement shall, not later than 3 months after being so identified, develop or revise an LEA plan in consultation with parents, school staff and others.

A listserv message was sent earlier this week about Final Title I School Improvement 1003 (a) allocations.  The message indicated School Improvement Plans must be approved before Title I School Improvement (a) budgets could be approved.  As a correction, as long as plans for all buildings in improvement are submitted, the budget can be approved without prior approval of the plan.

If you have any questions please, contact your Federal Compliance Supervisor http://www.dese.mo.gov/divimprove/fedprog/grantmgmnt/Staff2.html.
